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 ?


Log Name:      System
Source:        Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy
Date:          05-05-2014 11:23:31
Event ID:      1058
Task Category: None
Level:         Error
User:          SYSTEM
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\\sysvol\\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.
