On Saturday night I patched all of our servers with the most recent windows updates.  One of our domain controllers has been reporting event ID 1030 and 1058 every 5 minutes or when I manually do a gpupdate /force ever since the updates.

EVENT ID 1030
Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

EVENT ID 1058
Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=xxxxxxxx,DC=biz. The file must be present at the location <\\xxxxxx.biz\sysvol\xxxxxx.biz\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

I have checked the permissions on that sysvol folder and they are identical to all sysvol folders.  I can edit that policy(which is the domain default policy) and make a change and it updates the gpt.ini file.  I have run netdiag and dcdiag and no errors turn up.  SMB signing is set to disabled for both network and workstation.

I am unsure as to where to go from here.  Everything appears to function properly(so far).  

Any suggestions?

Very wierd stuff.  I updated the default GPO again but this time from the domain controller itself and now the problem appears to be gone.  I verified that the previous attempt to edit the GPO was successfull so I am not sure why this time worked.  The messages are gone now.
