Replication sysvol problem in a windows 2008 2003 environment

Last Modified: 2012-08-10
Dear Experts,

I am in a messy situation right now with our active directory replications. We recently place 2 windows 2008 server with the idea of replacing 2 windows 2003 servers. We already took one server offline. In one of the server I am getting this error:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\is.ad\sysvol\is.ad\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\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.
Event ID: 1058

This is from one of the new windows server 2008. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

Kindly, thank you so much, M
