My server is dropping its network shares every couple of hours and as frequently as 5 - 20 minutes after startup now. I migrated from another 2003 Server machine to this 2008 server 32bit machine last July. Recently and becoming more frequently (Now just 5 to 20 minutes after a restart) I am getting the following error:
Log Name: System
Date: 8/13/2010 3:12:19 PM
Event ID: 1058
Task Category: None
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\SLMI\sysvol\SLMI\Policie
\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following:
a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.
<Execution ProcessID="1044" ThreadID="3652" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />
e specified network name is no longer available. </Data>
Following this error all my network shares drop and no one can access shared folders on this server or network priinters attached to this server. The strange thing is this server is also the PDC for the domain. Can someone please help me with this? People using this server are becoming increasingly frustrated because they keep loosing access to their network folders. I am frustrated as well because the only way to restore access is to restart the server. Thanks in advance for your help.
