Hello all,

I want to change domain.local by localhost or the hostname. Becasue I'm receiveing errors like this:

There is no access to gpt.ini which it should be in this route:

If I try to get access to this folder I can't do it, but if I do the same change the first domain.local by localhost I can get access. Is this the solution? If it is where can I change this parameter?

Do you have any other idea to solve this matter?. I'm using an Small Business Server 2003 Premium Edition and I have 3 eth, one is the wan and the rest of them lan.

The problem is that I have this error on registry events. In this error I can see that the group policy hasn't been charged because there is no access to the gpt.ini.
So I want to change de domain.local by localhost in order to be able to get access in this folder.
Ok, so what has changed?  Is there more than one DC in your network running active directory?  Also please post the complete text of event log messages.

{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9} is your default domain policy, and is apparently not being processed..  Here is a related article from M$ which details possible causes:

Check to see if your SYSVOL share is mounted.  Usually if you should be able to access the GPO folder from any computer by going:


If you can't do that, then you've got some other issues that need to be addressed first....

This can also happen if the SYSVOL has been unshared or changed into a hidden share.  Please don't ask how I know that.

if SYSVOL isn't being shared then you have a bigger problem..  usually because your Domain Controller isn't becomming an Official domain controller (by not sharing the SYSVOL).   what event are getting logged on a boot of the compuer ?

I can't get access using \\domainname.com\sysvol\domainname.com\policies\{guid}
(I've change domainname.com by domain).
But if I make this \\localhost\sysvol\domainname.com\policies\  I can get access.
The only change is that I installed Microsoft Group Policy Management Console.
I don't if it could be the reason. I want to know if I uninstall this software what will happen and if I can't solve this matter if  I can configure domain controller again.

Thanks a lot

I've checked the DNS and I've found the following situation:

In the direct search I have 2 folders:


Also I tried to get access changing localhost by the internal ip address and I can't.
(\\ for instance)

I have configured the security in the Routing and Remote access.

Hello all,

Thanks a lot for your assisstance.
