I ve recently installed a new w2k3 server onto our network, installed AD, DNS and transferred FSMOs from the old w2k server onto the new one. THe old server is still online. Now every 5 minutes the application log on the w2k3 server displays Event ID 1030 and 1058 userenv, stating 'Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO cn={1E8D4F69-DDC4-4982-9EF1-538EF9BF344C9},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=xyz,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <xyz.localSysVolxyz.localPolicies{1E8D4F69-DDC4-4982-9EF1-538EF9B344C9}gpt.ini>. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.' Any ideas?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

One possibility for your problem could be related to the DFS (Directory File Service) on the Windows Server 2003 computer. DFS needs to be running on the DC. If the service is not running, set the startup type to’Automatic’(Start => Programs => Administrative Tools => Services) and start the service.

Good luck!

    Thanks for that, but DFS is running fine. I ve also checked the accss rights to the SYSVOL policies folder. System and Domain Admins have full rights, so Im not sure why 'Access is still denied'.

    Did you set a local GPO on the new server before promoting it? Or is this the old server giving the error? Because in either case your errors refer to a local GPO policy file not being found. So it sounds like a Replications Services related issue. Have you copied the folder where logon scripts and GPOs are stored? That speeds synchronization up but depending on how you copied you may have overwritten local policy files stored in the same folder. Sorry but it has been too long for me to remember specifics on things that can got wrong with with replication services and GPO files and folders.
