Event ID 1058: Windows cannot query a list of GP objects

This was the first event:

Event ID 1058: Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=mydomain,DC=com. The file must be present at the location <\\mydomain.com\sysvol\mydomain.com\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

And then came this:

Event ID 1030: Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

And then there are about a hundred of these:

Event ID 1053: Windows cannot determine the user or computer name. (Not enough storage is available to complete this operation. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

I've replaced the real domain name with "mydomain".  All help is greatly appreciated!

There are some possibilities for this:
First is, what luv2smile mentioned: SMB signing.
    (Server message block (SMB) signing is disabled for the Workstation service on a domain controller, but SMB signing is required for the Server service on the same domain controller.
     SMB signing is disabled for the Server service on a domain controller, but SMB signing is required for the Workstation service on the same domain controller)
Second: Do you have any user accounts like $(Account Name)Conflict0 ? If yes, delete them and it should be fine again.
Third: DFS is not running on your DC. Start the DFS Service.
Fourth: You came back from Suspend and winlogon is applying policies before network is running. Apply PSS-Hotfix 842804.
Last, but most common: DNS is missconfigured. No comment :)

First, how do I tell if SMB is disabled?
Second, I don't have any of those account names.
Third, The DFS Service is running
Fourth, I don't believe this happened because stand by isn't an option on the server under power optinos.
Fifth, certainly an option :)  I'm curious because of this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/Q842804 - when it says make sure DNS entries for DC's are correct.  This domain is connected via a VPN tunnel and it will occasionally drop.  I dont' remember if it dropped at the same time these errors started.  Is there a special way to configure the DC's so they know they're running across the 'net and won't freak when this tunnel might drop?

Thanks!

Regarding luv2smile's post:

for http://www.jsiinc.com/SUBL/tip5800/rh5874.htm, it's not on an XP machine

for http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314494, that applies to XP also

http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1058&source= was the most helpful but I have a question regarding http://support.microsoft.com/kb/Q842804 - How do I know these are correct? :

• Domain controllers have the read and apply rights to the Domain Controllers Policy.
• NTFS file system permissions and share permissions are set correctly on the Sysvol share.

Still looking at all of the possible issues in the other articles...

An approach would be to put them in different sites (AD Sites and Services) and to configure dedicated replication times.
But that would lead to a higher replication latency for your AD.

> Domain controllers have the read and apply rights to the Domain Controllers Policy
Try to create/modify a policy on a DC. If it works, you have the rights.

>NTFS file system permissions and share permissions are set correctly on the Sysvol share
no idea atm, but keeping on looking for :)
