Cannot apply GPO Software Installation - Event 1058 & 1030

Posted on 2012-08-15

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:

Event Type:      Error

The file must be present at the location <\\\SysVol\\Policies\{26936B0C-6D7D-4902-A874-587D18F173DE}\gpt.ini>. (The request is not supported. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

    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
    User:          N/A
    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.
    Event Xml:
    <Event xmlns="">
        <Provider Name="NtFrs" />
        <EventID Qualifiers="32768">13508</EventID>
        <TimeCreated SystemTime="2012-08-15T20:29:35.000000000Z" />
        <Channel>File Replication Service</Channel>
        <Security />

    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...

    Accepted Solution

    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.
