Cannot apply GPO Software Installation - Event 1058 & 1030

Hello all:

I'm trying to install 32-bit Trend Micro antivirus on about 40 clients after adding a Server 2008 R2 as a DC on a domain that was formerly Server 2000.

On some of them it works just fine, but on a bunch of the machines, both Windows XP and Windows 7, it's not installing, and I'm getting the dreaded Event 1058 and 1030 in the Application logs:

Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. A message that describes the reason for this was previously logged by the policy engine.

we had this issue and the stale TS session were using old password for the user id's.

Since the user was logged on to the serve with old password was preventing the group policy refresh.

Please see if your DC has 13568 event ID in File replication if yes then its issue with sysvol

If Not try accessing \\domainname\Policies\({GUID Of Goup Policy})\GPT.ini

1) I'm getting 13501, 13516 and 13508. 13508 is below

Log Name:      File Replication Service
Source:        NtFrs
Date:          8/15/2012 4:29:35 PM
Event ID:      13508
Task Category: None
Level:         Warning
Keywords:      Classic

The File Replication Service is having trouble enabling replication from TESTSVR to CAMSVRDC01 for c:\windows\sysvol\domain using the DNS name FRS will keep retrying.
 Following are some of the reasons you would see this warning.
 [1] FRS can not correctly resolve the DNS name from this computer.
 [2] FRS is not running on
 [3] The topology information in the Active Directory Domain Services for this replica has not yet replicated to all the Domain Controllers.
 This event log message will appear once per connection, After the problem is fixed you will see another event log message indicating that the connection has been established.

2) I'm unable to access the share from one of the affected computers. Error is attached.
This happen if you have stale terminal session on your machine try logging off the stale terminal session and error will go away automatically.

I'm not sure what stale terminal sessions have to do with not being able to query group policy objects...
