Userenv Errors


Our company has a Windows 2000 Server Domain Controller with Windows XP workstations. All of the workstations are getting this error in the application log.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1058
Date:            12/05/2006
Time:            2:22:37 PM
User:            NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      COMPUTERNAME
Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={60BB1293-FD16-4242-822B-C80D3068C135},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=ClassicFoods,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <\\ClassicFoods.local\SysVol\ClassicFoods.local\Policies\{60BB1293-FD16-4242-822B-C80D3068C135}\gpt.ini>. (The system cannot find the path specified. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

If I browse to \\domainname.local\SysVol\domainname.local\Policies

This link returns some folders, but not the 60BB1293-FD16-4242-822B-C80D3068C135 folder listed in the error message. However, if I browse to \\servername\SysVol\domainname.local\Policies the 60BB1293-FD16-4242-822B-C80D3068C135 folder (and several other) folders do appear.

Any Ideas on what the problem could be?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi sympact,

there is a few possiblities with this

also make sure your DNS csettings are correct - client should only be look at the server and nothing youg et the 1030 as well?

Is this the only DC that you have? If yes, did you have another one installed at some time?

When the error start appearing? Can you tie-in any actions with that date?

DNS Setting are correct and I am getting the 1030 event aswell.

I cant tie the error in with any actions or date. There is a Domain Controller and a Backup domain controller.

I have figured out that when i type:

\\domainname.local\SysVol\domainname.local\Policies it is displaying the backup domain controller not the domain controller.

there is a hotfix out for this

I fixed this problem

For some reason the PC's were getting the policy from the backup domain controller. So I copied the policies to that server.
well there we go, good stuff
