Guys, how do i resolve this issue:

Log Name:      System
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy
Date:          11/18/2010 10:58:26 AM
Event ID:      1058
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
Keywords:      
User:          P_DOMAIN\ahester
Computer:      ROC-406905L.petersons.net
Description:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\petersons.net\SysVol\petersons.net\Policies\{B69C7D90-EC41-482F-9910-E69D8C44389C}\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.

Below was taken from Microsoft site:

Error code 3 (The system cannot find the path specified)
This error code usually indicates that the client computer cannot find the path specified in the event.

This failure may be caused by the DFS Client not running. Refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base article about how to resolve this failure (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314494).

To test client connectivity to the domain controller's sysvol:

1.Identify the domain controller used by computer. The domain controller name is logged in the details of the error event.
2.Identify if failure happened during user or computer processing. For user policy processing, the User field of the event will show a valid user name; for computer policy processing, the User field will show "SYSTEM".
3.Compose full network path to the gpt.ini as \\<dcName>\SYSVOL\<domain>\Policies\<guid>\gpt.ini where <dcName> is the name of the domain controller, <domain> is the name of the domain, and <guid> is the GUID of the policy folder. All of this information appears in the event.
4.Verify you can read gpt.ini using the full network path obtained in the previous step. To do this, launch a command window and type <file_path>, where <file_path> is the path constructed in the previous step, and press ENTER. NOTE: You must launch this command as the user or computer whose credentials previously failed.
5.Follow Network troubleshooting procedures to diagnose the problem further (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=92706).
