This is an error you may come across of the life of the server. This can also happen depending on your disk subsystem - if too slow, etc.

It's simple to correct, following the steps in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2612832

Be sure to have a full system state backup before proceeding, as I've seen that the default policies can be lost and would be handy to have a backup. Alternatively ensure you have a copy of the \\SBSSERVER\SYSVOL\INTERNALDNSNAME.local\Policies and Scripts folder.

Best of luck!
