My PDC is running 2000.

On the 2003 server machine i have this error?

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=teleflexct. The file must be present at the location <\\teleflexct\sysvol\teleflexct\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

I have tried doing the MUP fix with no luck.

I am in a Windows 2003 level domain with 2Domain Controllers running DNS, DHCP, WINS. One DC started receiving Event Id: 1058

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={81B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=hr,DC=emory,DC=edu. The file must be present at the location <\\hr.emory.edu\sysvol\hr.emory.edu\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

followed by a Event Id:1030
This occured for about ten days. I finally got concerned and looked at the articles referring to XP SMB signing but decided not to apply XP fixes to a 2003 DC.

I'm happy to say  the errors have gone away, but I'm not sure what I did had any effect on it. Here is what I did. I rebooted the DC which was not receiving the errors. Then changed its network connection DNS setting from 127.0.0.1 to its real IP address. Then rebooted it again. Then I changed the DNS network connection settings on the "problem" DC from 127.0.0.1 to its real address and rebooted it. I've been error free for 2 hours.
This seems high unlikely the DNS settings were to blame, but maybe the rebooting helped. Just a side note, the problem DC is running the PDC emulator FSMO.

It seems microsoft doesn't address this error.

830676 isnt available anymore and I am having the problem.  Does anyone have a copy of 830676 or can someone verify that it was changed to 888943?

The KB I found sais there should be a random domain name in the error and my domain names are corect, not random.
