Can't logon to domain controller;1058 1030 errors

Posted on 2007-07-20

Windows 2003 Server.  When I attempt to logon directly to the server, after I enter the username and password, I never get a desktop.  I'm able to move the mouse, and all the network resources are available for users, but I can't access the server.

I can, however, RDP to the server just fine.  I managed to check the event logs, and am logging a ton of 1030 and 1058 errors indicating the "generic but never really very helpful" gpi problems.
This server is a domain controller.

    No.  That's not it.  The server is completely patched and current.

    Correction, the description should have read gpt.ini, not gpi.ini.  Can an admin change please?

    This is scary.  A 500 point question that's gotten one response in almost a week.

    Admin - please close this question.  I'm going to seek help elsewhere.

    Accepted Solution

    I solved the problem myself.  It's due to missing files under the policy folder.
