Hi everyone,

I am having some issues with group policy deployment and can not add any new computers to the network.  This is a SBS 2008 server fully updated etc...

i found the issue but I can not seem to find a resolution.  Hoping you can help.

The error I am getting is as follows:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\{my-domain}\SysVol\{my-domain}\Policies\{D7566850-CD28-4AEB-899D
-1603BBBE7D18}\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:

So the issue is the C:\Windows\sysvol\sysvol\{my-comain}\Policies\{D7566850-CD28-4AEB-899D-1603BBBE7D18} is not the location of the gpt.ini file...  it is actually located at C:\Windows\sysvol\sysvol\{my-comain}\Policies\{F65B9DFD-1820-464D-934E-B0B73C01839F}

How do I get the system looking in the correct location?  I have no idea how this got changed but domain join and group policy flat doesn't work right now.

Thanks a bunch!
