Errors userenv 1058 and 1030

Hello experts,
 
I had two domain controllers withe Windows Server 2003 SP2. Some days ago, I had to remove (forced remove) one of them, and the other one had to take all the roles. We had a bunch of issues regarding active directory replication, but at the end we made everything work correctly.
 
The domain control functionality seems to work fine. We can create users, modify them, log in computers to the domain, users can log in and so on.
The only issue is that each 5 minutes we get a a pair of errors UserEnv 1030 and 1058 in the event log:

1030 is Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects.
1058 is Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=MyDomain,DC=org. The file must be present at the location <\\MyDomain.org\sysvol\MyDomain.org\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.
 
 
Error 1058 tell us that the file gpt.ini in Policies folder can't be accessed. It's no surprise, as that folder and files structure does not exist in SYSVOL.
 
Taking a look to a backup, when the two DC still existed, all those files and folders existed.
 
How should us fix these errors?  Should we just copy back the files from the backup or is it somehow dangerous? Should we do anything else?
 
Thanks in advance,
     Gregorio

You can safely copy back the policies and scripts folder from a backup.  We often do this when doing a disaster recovery restore of the main DC.

You will probably need to reboot for this to take effect.

Make sure you run a metadata cleanup to remove any objects from the failed DC.

Thanks!

We copied the policies back and everything worked fine after rebooting :)
