Errors 1058 and 1030 appearing in Application Event Log since server reset

Posted on 2008-11-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-05

I'm getting regular 1030 and 1058 errors in the Server Application log every 5 minutes.  They seem to date from when there was a power cut here (the UPS ran out of battery before they realised power was out).

I;ve looked at Event 1030 and event 1058 may be logged, and you may not be able to start the Group Policy snap-in on your Windows Small Business Server 2003 computer A Windows Server 2003-based computer may stop responding when it is resumed from standby and events 1030 and 1058 are logged in the application log of a domain controller

I've done a DNS cache flush and dfsutil /PurgeMupCache.  I can access the SYSVOL share and the server name can be resolved using NSLOOKUP.

No effect on users but It's become an issue because I need to edit a GP and when I try to open Grou Policy Management from AD U&C, I get a "Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights.  Detsils: Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable or access has been denied."  I'm doing this using remote desktop on the Server using an Admin account.

    Event ID 1030 & 1058 Errors

    These are quite common first Check your server has SP1 installed (right click My Computer> properties > General)  if installing SP1 is not an option ten follow this KB
    Next Step is to make sure that some services are running and set to automatic.
    1. Start > run > services.msc {enter}
    2. Locate the following services ensure they are all started and the startup type is set to automatic.
    A. Dfs Service
    b. TCP.IP Netbios helper service
    3. Now Click Start > Run > dsa.msc {enter} Active directory users and computers should start.
    4. Right click your domainname > Properties >Group Policy
    5. Locate the default domain Policy > Right Click Edit
    6. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment
    7. Locate bypass traverse checking and ensure this right has been has been granted to the Everyone Group
    8. Ensure the Servers Anti Virus Software is NOT scanning the sysvol directory (in McAfee Right click the shield > virus scan console > On Access Scan > Right Click > Properties > All processes > Detection tab > Exclusions > Add browse > c:\windows\system32\sysvol
    9. Look at the corresponding 1058 Error it will say something like "network path not found" or "access is denied" and it will give you the name or the GPO it cannot process.
    31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9 is the default domain policy you can find it here \\domain_controller_name\SYSVOL\\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}
    Note: Authenticated users should have Read and Execute, List Folder Contents and Read to this directory.

    Thanks VERY much,

    I found that the TCP.IP Netbios helper service was stopped.  I restarted it (it was already set to automatic).  That seems to have cleared the errors.
