1058 errors and SYSVOL cannot find path

Hello,

I am seeing the folowing error message on one ofour new DC's I installed

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO cn={AAB8D770-A485-4F6A-805D-1BD0519CA229},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=domain,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <\\domain.local\SysVol\domain.local\Policies\{AAB8D770-A485-4F6A-805D-1BD0519CA229}\gpt.ini>. (The system cannot find the path specified. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

What permissions do I need to verify?

Thanks

To view that path you just need to be an Authenticated User.  Just browse to \\domainname\sysvol\domain\policies and look for that GUID above.

I went directly on the DC and browsed to that GUID and I see it. but for some reason when I try to run the policy from a server that it specifically is for I receive the above error message.

I rant the gpotool and found errors. So what I did is the following

I went into sites and services and made sure to replicate between the 2 dc's. I still see errors when I run the gpotool. When I do a compare between the 2 sysvol's they are not identical. In the gpotool it does state that there aree mismatch's.

Cna I just do a copy from the dc that I know has the correct guid's and over to the other. Would this fix the problem?

I would try the copy.  However this may be a permission issue.  What permission does Everyone have to that folder?  Also has there been any changes to the DC...new or replaced HW?

Not sure if this will help but MS does have a KB on that error:

On both servers the share permission for Everyone is Read.

I will take a look at the KB

I see error's as follows
dc2 failed  test frsevent
which says that it will affect group policies.

What other errors do you have in FRS? It seems you might have a replication problem between the two DCs. Can you post a ipconfig /all for both DCs?

sammy_bullAuthor Commented:
here are the text files

Also DC1 is 32 Bit Windows
DC2 64 bit windows.

I don't know if this makes a difference

Everything looks good how about the Event Logs?

Here is the error I get under file replication service event log

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from C1 toDC2 for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name dc1.Domain.local. FRS will keep retrying.
 Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 
 [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name dc1.Domain.local from this computer.
 [2] FRS is not running on dc1.domain.local.
 [3] The topology information in the Active Directory for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
 
 This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


This is causing the problem.

Can you ping dc1.Domain.local? Make sure that the A record matches the IP address of the server.

sammy_bullAuthor Commented:
I can ping and the name resolves correctly.

Darius GhassemCommented:
Are you pinging from the other server? Force replication by going to AD Sites and Services right NTDS then select replicate.
