Group Policy Error 1058 - Windows 2008 DCs and Win 7 Clients

LWBIT asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
All of a sudden we are receiving the following error and it is popping up exponetially on our clients when trying to pull Group Policys:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\lwb.local\SysVol\lwb.local\Policies\{758725FA-812B-4A29-A1A7-EC80126136D2}\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.

We are fully win 2008 servers and Windows 7 clients. Error started appearing late last week and they are springing up more and more daily.

Does anyone have any ideas?
