Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO

Hi,
I am recieving the following error on a Small Buisness Server 2003 Box

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=Amoonguna,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <\\Amoonguna.local\sysvol\Amoonguna.local\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

How do i resolve this?

Maybe this wil help: Open ADU&C, right click on the domain controllers OU, properties.  Go to the policy tab, highlight the domain controller security policy and click permission.  Grant the Enterprise Domain Controllers and Authenticated Users groups "apply group policy" permissions.  Then run gpupdate and see if the error returns.
