I have 20 Windows 2000 clients and servers running on my domain, and today they have started to be unable to connect to the server, its as if they have all lost their SID's, even the servers.

Times are correct on domains, servers and clients.

My DC runs virtually, could that be a problem, it is a new DC as well.

The servers give an error on GPO which reads:

windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO cn={d5bd7ea5-22f1-453f-8806} etc etc
It says that access to the file \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\{d5bd7ea5-22f1-453f-8806}\gpt.ini Access is Denied.

Now, the DC was switches to the virtual server about a week ago, and the oproblem has turned up today, would it have taken this long to replicate or am i just going off on a tangent here?

Any insight would be great
