Why do I get User env Event ID 1054 errors in the Event Applications log?

I have been getting  User env Event ID 1054 errors in the Event log -  "Windows can not obtain the domain controller name for your computer...Group Policy Processing aborted."

What will cause this error?

How do I get rid of these error messages?
Thanks

Try to run dfsutil /purgemupcache on the server. Also, can you post an ipconfig /all of the server

It sounds like your IP settings are pointing to an invalid DNS server.  

If the computer you are talking about is the primary domain controller, your preferred DNS server should be set to: 127.0.0.1

If the computer is not a domain controller but is part of a domain, the preferred DNS server should be the IP address of the primary domain controller (and the secondary should be that of a secondary domain controller).

Control Panel --> Network Connections --> right click on Local Area Connection --> choose Properties --> highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) --> click the Properties button -> type in the correct DNS information --> click OK.

Thanks for the iinput. The correct DNS IP was already in the configuration. I then tried to set to automatic
and still the same issue.

Ran IPconfig/all   and  returned the correct DNS IP that was  entered in the Connection configuration.

Any other ideas?

I don't have access to the DNS server. I ran IPconfig/all and the correct DNS IP is returned.

Correction - workstation not server.

The correct DNS IP had been configured manually. I changed it to automatic. When that did not solve the problem I reconfigured back to the
correct DNS IP manually and that fixed the issue.
