The user "DOMAIN\user" does not have RSOP data

I have resolved a problem with the group policies on the server but I still have the same problem on the workstations.
When I run gpresult, I get the following error;
INFO: The user "DOMAIN\user" does not have RSOP data
When I run rsop.msc, I get the following error
RSoP data is invalid. Likely causes are, data is corrupt, data has been deleted or data has never been created.
Datails: Invalid namespace

I reinstalled a new server and was trying to get some of the SYSVOL data restored from the tape. After I did this, that is when I started having the problems. I deleted all of the existing policies, ran dcgpofix and that put the default GPO's back but I still have the issues above. Of couse the workstations don't run the GPO's and they take a long time to log in.

Troubleshooting RSoP:

May not be that helpful though.

It sounds like that the workstations are not picking up the replaced policies - the issue is that they seem to have corrupted policies as well.

You could try resetting the accounts in AD - but this has never really worked for me. Could you try reinstalling one station - and see if that works out?

If that doesn't solve the problem - then you still have a server problem.

I wound up reinstalling the WIndows 2003 OS and that fixed the problem

I had this problem and found that I had the wrong DNS server entered. I'm running SBS and I had to have its IP as the DNS.
