Do you have the "TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service"  Enabled?
If not enable it and then run gpupdate /force and monitor the error.

srfrdrewAuthor Commented:
Yes, and confirmed it is started and "running" in Services(Local)
I ran gpupdate /force again for laughs and giggles.

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
Below are the reasons.

Causes: 1. There is an incorrect DNS settings or the SBS/DC is running on a multihomed computer.

2. File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks is not enabled on the domain controller.

3. The TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service is disabled.

Is the Group policy template file present in SYSVOL?

\\MyDomain.org\SysVol\Mydomain.org\Policies\{C0617C49-F50B-4D68-B0B3-BE0D8B07D7D8}\gpt.ini

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
snusgubben is also right, check if policy is actually present. If it is corrupt, you need to restore it from the backup.

Is this a critial issue that needs to be done?

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
I normal ignore those error, if not seeing any issue with users.

To check what is this policy throwing errors. Open GPMC, click on each policy, click on Details and check the Unique ID with C0617C49-F50B-4D68-B0B3-BE0D8B07D7D8

You will know, where the issue

I'm running windows 2003 standard edition, i do not believe there is a GPMC.msc

The Unique ID with C0617C49-F50B-4D68-B0B3-BE0D8B07D7D8 seems to be associated with "Disable Network Places / GPO status "Enabled"  However no error message when clicked on.

However, I just clicked on Group Policy Objects -->Default Domain Controller --->Window Message Pop Up stating "The permissions for the GPO in teh Sysvol folder are inconsistent with those in Active Directory.  It is recommended that these permissions be consistent.  To change the Sysvol permissions to those in Active Directory, click OK
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;828760
I have SP2 installed already?

I have not clicked OK YET.

just got through this myself on sunday.  it was bad dns entries (recently changed and demoted/promoted virtual dc's) and the only way for me to clear it was to reboot because ipconfig and the properties on tcp/ip failed.  be prepared for it to take forever to boot up though, then once its back up you should be able to get into the properties and set the dns correctly.

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
If you have SP2, article says to workaround click OK, so ACL will be fixed.

srfrdrewAuthor Commented:
O.K., I did go ahead and click on OK To change the Sysvol permissions to those in Active Directory in the GPM.  Still showing the events 1058 and 1030.  I've already rebooted the workstation as well with no resolve either.

Just to reiterate that  The Unique ID with C0617C49-F50B-4D68-B0B3-BE0D8B07D7D8 seems to be associated with "Disable Network Places / GPO status "Enabled"  However no error message when clicked on it in the GPM

snusgubbenCommented:
Domain controllers refresh their GPOs every 5 minutes, that's way it's logged every 5 minutes. This is a custom made GPO, and what you are saying it sounds like it's not a crucial one.

Is it linked to any OUs?

Yes: Recreate it.

No: Delete it.

AmitIT ArchitectCommented:
You can ignore the errors if policy is not is use and unlink it

srfrdrewAuthor Commented:
As a matter of fact, yes this is a custom made GPO.. a while ago, I did not want my users browsing into the Network Neighborhood, so I created a custom policy to not have Network Neighborhood show up on their workstations in the domain.

snusgubbenCommented:
I would in your case recreate it using the GPMC you just installed, and see if the 1030/1058 errors stops.

snusgubbenCommented:
If you wanna troubleshoot, you should read this article written by ChiefIT about these generic errors:

srfrdrewAuthor Commented:
WOW, great article! it's looking more like the custom GPO that I created is the culprit.
0
 
srfrdrewAuthor Commented:
I have removed/deleted the custom GPO "Disable Network Places"

The errors have now stopped.

rxdeathCommented:
uhm yea that article clutch thanks

srfrdrewAuthor Commented:
I'll recreate my custom policy and see what happens

ChiefITCommented:
You still have a multihomed DC..

This is not a recommended practice, can cause all kinds of issues, (especially on an SBS machine).
