EventID 1030 and 1058

Hey guys

Ok, yesterday I had lots of issues with my server and I was able to get people logging in by running the D4 restore.  They are somewhat able to login now but now all the directories
under \\computername\sysvol\computername\ is blank.

Before I had this whole mess come down on me, the sysvol area had a lot of directories and I was smart enough to back them up to a separate directory (same partition).  In fact, I backed up the Policies and the Domain information.

The adsiedit says that those diretories should be there verbatim.  The question now stands, can I simply stop ntfrs and netlogon services, restore those directories back where they were before and restart the ntfrs and netlogon services since there is nothing there except for one directory which name says to NOT delete.

The error log says that the gpt.ini file is not available.  If I go to my backup I see the gpt.ini file in there where its supposed to be.

Since the directories are well documented directories (and not just random numbers) I would think that a restore from backup would solve a lot of issues (some of the users are able to login to their PCs but are getting group policy erros and a host of other nuisance problems)

I did happen to see some help from microsoft on how to rebuild the diretories under the sysvol directory.  I will probably check that out if no help is forthcoming from here.

Here is the article I found (the bottom of the article at least)

How to temporarily stabilize the domain SYSVOL tree
1.Stop FRS on all domain controllers in the domain and set the service to Disabled.
2.Manually copy the full set of policies to the following folder on each domain controller:
\SYSVOL\SYSVOL\dns domain name\policies
Typically, the following two policies are required for authentication: ┬┐Default Domain Controllers Policy {6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9}
┬┐ Default Domain Policy {31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}

Note You may have to copy additional policies depending on Group Policy requirements for the environment.
3. Manually copy all necessary scripts to the following folder:
\SYSVOL\SYSVOL\DNS Domain name\scripts

Right now, none of those directories exist on the reference domain controller.  I dont know if I even backed up enough folders.

I wonder if a backup from a month ago of the directories would be any good.  This network only has about 5 people on it.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I just read the link and thanks but this 1030 and 1058 error is being generated on the reference domain controller itself :-(

I went ahead and backed up the servers, wiped and rebuilt them with SBS 2011 and Server 2012.  It was only 5 users so it wasnt that bad.  Just a lot of backing up and restoring of email boxes that had not seen use in a few years but still needed to be retained.

Unfortunately there was no other help and since this ticket had been open for so long with no other help, I decided to just close it.
