Event Id 1058, GroupPolicy

I have a Windows Server 2008R2 as the only Domain Controller in a certain domain

It keeps (every 5 minutes) generating the following error in the system Event Viewer, and I'm not able to figure out why.

Please can anyone comment ?

Description:
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\Lanic1.dk\sysvol\Lanic1.dk\Policies\{6AC1786C-016F-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.

Hi,
I once had exactly the same problem, probably due to a previous incomplete/incorrect upgrade from win2000/win2003/win2008 active directory.
Here are a couple of links i bookmarked ... unfortunately i can't remember which one solved the issue.

Thanks Max

I already tried out the things mentioned but nothing really helped. I'm sorry.

Have you tried enabling IPv6 on this server?

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I solved this by restoring the Default Domain Policy GPO
