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.

johnbowden,

have you rejoined the domain since the server issues?

Regards,

Can you try reinstalling a station as I previously asked?

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

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.
