I am getting these in Event Log on Server 2008R2.

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\rpd\sysvol\rpd\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\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:
a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

Error 53.  The network path was not found.

Where should I start?

I should mention this is a one server shop.

I get this error when I issue "gpudate /force" on the server as well.

If I ping the server's name, instead of hearing back from 192.168.1.12 (the server's IPv4 addy), I get a response from an IPv6 addy.  In the networking portion of the interface, I have disabled IPv6.  So this just seems weird.

You could check to see if the GP is corrupt by doing the following test..
1) In GPMC make a copy of the GP in question and rename it something like Test-Gp

2) Apply it to the same user/ computer and see if users/workstation are able to process the Test-GP
