Windows 7 computers not processing computer group policies event id 1058

Our IT Team started supporting a client who's AD was unfortunately not in the best of health.  After forcing the removal of a domain controller that could not be demoted normally, we noticed that new computer GPO's didn't seem to be applied to the systems.  All of the user policies are being applied successfully.  I looked at the system log of the Windows 7 computer and saw that an Event ID 1058 is being logged on the system with the following error message:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\WIndowsDomain.com\sysvol\WindowsDomain.com\Policies\{70B96450-984E-429E-B7F3-2805F88A3B06}\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.

On the Details pane, the ErrorCode is 3 - could not find the path.   I went into the Sysvol share on the two domain controllers that are still in the environment and the GUID of that policy does not exist on either of the two domain controllers.  

We do remember seeing that a couple of the group policies that did exist in the environment at one time were reported as not found.    

If that said policy is not able to be retrieved from backup, is there another way of fixing this issue?

Hi,

I suspect that the DC has got replication issues. Do you have any DC with good copy of sysvol? (which means without missing any policies). If so, you can go for burflag method http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2218556.

If none of the servers are having good sysvol folder then only option would be restore it from good backup.
