Getting an Event ID 1058 Group Policy error on Windows Server 2008

Last Modified: 2015-03-13
Hello.  We have a couple Windows servers on our Server 2008R2 network where we are seeing a group policy 1058 error.  We started searching the logs due to strange connection losses and slowness in our ERP and warehouse mgmt systems where users were complaining about "freeze ups" and other things not working.  We are just starting our investigation as to what could be wrong, and found these errors.  there may be others.  Here is the error message:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\lacoinc1.local\sysvol\lacoinc1.local\Policies\{FCF440CF-78C1-4AB1-BAFE-FFED098F5E9B}\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.
