an similar question is in discussion in this boad, but I want to create a new question because
of some special issues in this case. ( https://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_21505695.html
I have 2 Windows 2000 Servers with SP4 installed.
Furthermore there are some Windows 2000 Professional Clients in this network.
The network is a mixed AD, that means it is not transfered to native mode yet.
Both Servers are domain controllers, one of them with ISA Server for internet access.
There are no different routes or no problems with network communication.
Since a few days, some computers are unable to load GPO correctly.
On these computers, error message 1000 appears every 5 minutes in event log.
"This error message is : Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO at the location <>. Group Policy processing aborted."
To localise the error, I tested :
a) Created a new user with the default profile --> Policy not loaded, Error 1000 appears
b) Checked for NTFRS issues on both domain Controllers --> File Replication is working fine!
c) Checked Eventlog of both Domain Controllers and detected, the error 1000 appears on both every
5 Minutes in Application Log. The first time this error appears was after installing some windows updates.
These updates are :
d) Checked for directory service errors --> no errors
e) Checked for APC Version ( 7.02 ) --> OK and running !
I hope someone knows anything about this problem and can give me some hints
for solving the issue.
Thanks in advance
