Hello everyone.

I am receiving Event ID 1058 and 1030 regarding Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO messege in the event log for multiple Windows XP clients. I am not receiving this messege on the domain controllers and I can open the Group Policy Management Snap in without issues. I followed thid KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314494 but I still have no luck resolving the issue. I wonder what this could be.  Thanks in advanced.

Have you tried removing the PC's from the domain and rejoining the domain?

no I have not since they are a remote location. I will try that.

You might also try running NSLOOKUP and seeing if there are any invalid records. I would also dig through my DNS settings for any invalid A records for the affected machines and remove any that are found. Good luck to you.

Could be a lot of things GPO permissions, DNS, network, to name a few

I'd try the dfsutil /purgemupcache first and see if that helps (i've had luck with it on a few boxes in the past)
