Hello All

I have 3 Domain controllers located in 3 different sites connected across a high speed wan. We started to experience a issue today where group policies were not applying correctly. I rand repadmin and all looks good, I ran replmon and noted that the Directory Partitions looked correct during replication, however group policy was not updating as the versions were off. I now note that when I create a policy on the DC that holds the PDC Emulator role the GP is created correctly and when I force replication the GP replicates however I am unable to edit the policy as it tells me that the system cannot find the object.I would appreciate any advice.

Do your 1058 and/or 1030 event errors go away?
