Im getting the following application log on Windows 2003 Server every 10 minutes - Event 1058 Windows can not access the file Gpt.ini ...etc followed by Event 1030 - Windows can not query the list of group policy objects etc etc.

The server has been running without fault for months untill a few Vista clients connected to it and i've run into nothing but problems syncronising etc etc..

Anyone got a fix for this..I've had no complaints so far but the server has hung a few times during offline file sync.

The error messages appear to haev stopped after a Server restart - Maybe this will happen again tomorrow once the clients log back on..


So far so good on this one snusgubben: I followed and applied most, but not all of the MS Article regarding this issue and i haven't had any Application events at all in 15 hrs+ COME-ON !!!  Sweet bitch lol

Tell u what i did notice though on the Server DNS the Primary was and secondary
which is the Server's local IP address. Maybe this was the gremlin cause ...Mmm don't know and i just hope it ain't coming back or i may just call for my friend`` Mr Sledge Hammer ;-)



Oh man there back again.....Heeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllpppppppppppppppppppppppppppp


Think i sorted this, but not building up hopes just yet.  After following the MS atricle about this,  that snusgubben:recommended to me i thought it had worked...seems i was wrong.

This is what i did after that and i've had none so far for almost 24 hrs --
(1) removed any third party software which i could reinstall later i.e. Nod32 business edition + Malware bytes spyware remover.
(2) Disabled Shadow copies
(3) removed the latest Security update (KB960715)
(4) unplugged my Ext removable drive
(5) stopped services for Acronis true echo server

Now i didn't do these one at a time so if this has cured the problem then i will install back on one at a time and try to pinpoint the problem.. Most suspicious about AV - never had problems in the past but then again Vista wasn't joined to the domain.

The most common issues that is causing 1030 and 1058 errors are DNS problems. (partial replication errors between DCs leaving ie. sysvol on a partial state -> journal wrap).

Since you didn't have these errors until you got Vista machines in your domain, could it be due to a Vista machine having IPv6 (and IPv4) active on the NIC? (registered a AAAA-record in your DNS).



Not sure Snusgubben, since i did the following things in my last post i've had no reports for over 24 hours.
I don't know if this was coincidental but i am happy at present and get can on with some work.
Can you elaborate a little on your last regarding Ipv6 and Ipv4 and what to check for etc.

Open DNS mng consol on your DC and look for quad-A records (AAAA) in your Forward lookup zone.



I've checked the Dns for Quad A records and none are listed.  #I don't have the problem since doing the above so i'm going to reverse these back onto the system one at a time and see what happens,  Also i did rejoin one of the Vista clients back to the domian, so maybe this could have been the problem machine.

Will let you know in good time - thanks.
