After imaging servers Hard Drives over onto larger Hard Drives the sysvol's policies files are missing.  I've run dcgpofix to recreate the default windows policies but need a way to reload default policies for the sbs 03 prem.  They had not modifed the default policies from the original installation.  I'm getting 1058 and 1030 errors in the eventlog.  Event 1058 says that it cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={936841FE-....} ... The file must be present at the location <\\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{936841FE-....}\gpt.ini>.

It's not finding the file because it's not there.  Before running dcgpofix, the sysvol area was missing all of the {........-.......} folders and after running dcgpofix there are the two windows 03 default.  How do I get the other default gpo's reloaded?

Thanks in advance

That was what I was looking for.  I was able to backup GPOs from working server and Restore to the server with the missing GPO's.  

Thanks for your help...
