Event 1058 in system log 2008

We had a sbs2003 server and a 2008r2 after the migration the sbs box died and we found that the sysvol hadn't replicated. We did a sysvol rebuild and now have the correct folders and files in it.

We have just added a 2008 server and made it a domain controller as well.
The system log keeps giving the following error 5 minutes:

Event ID: 1058
 Source: Group Policy
 General Details: The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\Domain\SysVol\Domain\Policies\{FE9D1BD7-0460-492A-9A91-93A0EF7D30AB}\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.

Looking on both servers the folder {FE9D1BD7-0460-492A-9A91-93A0EF7D30AB} doesn't exist on either server. but two other folders exist and gpt.ini is in them, both servers have same named folders different time stamps. It seems the event 1058 is referencing the old sbs folder which is no longer on the system, how can I cure this.

Many thanks

looks like the Domain controllers you built up has issues and not replicating with the new DC.. try using below tools to fix the errors..

1. DCDiag

Hi
Thanks for the feedback, I think the replication is working but the GPO folder referenced doesn't exist on the domain controller, I believe it is the folder name that was on the original SBS box that died. We had to rebuild the sys vol using an authorative restore (D4) which made new policy folders of different names, but somewhere it keeps referencing the old GPO folder. The new folders have replicated to the new server and DNS says it is up to date.
I just rebooting the domain controller to see if that "flush's" anything.

We have solved this now, nothing more than short cuts to the old SBS2003 servers GPO, once they were deleted and gpo updated no more errors.

We investigated what FRS was trying to do and it led us to the Group Policy Management console where the dead short cuts were.
