Hi All,

We are currently experiencing some problems at a clients site and could do with eliminating a GPO error that occurs in event log so that we can progress and find the cause of the problem.

Currently, all users are recieving these error messages when logging on and randomly throughout the day:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1058
Date:            05/05/2009
Time:            08:44:05
User:            *****\****
Computer:      ***-***
Description:
Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO cn={92EA504F-144E-4295-9477-B7BA1EBA4073},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=*****,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <\\*****.local\SysVol\*****.local\Policies\{92EA504F-144E-4295-9477-B7BA1EBA4073}\gpt.ini>. (The system cannot find the path specified. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

Followed by:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1030
Date:            05/05/2009
Time:            08:44:05
User:            *****\****
Computer:      ***-******
Description:
Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. A message that describes the reason for this was previously logged by the policy engine.

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


We have performed gpupdate /force on all machines, winsock reset, and secedit repairs on the sysvol folders.

The secedit repairs stopped this message coming up on the servers but it still comes up on the clients machines.

The patch where the error says it cannot find the gpt.ini file doesn't even exist in the sysvol.

Has anybody had this problem before?

Thanks
