Event ID: 1058 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have WinXp workstations that are unable to update GPO's and are coming up with Application Event errors 1030 and 1058. We have Windows 2008 R2 DC's. On the workstations that fail, we can't access the SYSVOL using \\domainname\sysvol UNC but able to access using \\servername\sysvol UNC. The resolve to the same IP address which is weird. The 1058 error specifically says: (The format of the specified network name is invalid.). Please assist.

  • Hi Tanmoy,

     

    The MS article posted by IAMRAFIC solved our problem, thank God and thank IamRafic and yourself for the assistance. It was

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314494 . Basically, we created the DisableDFS registry key to enable DFS client on the XP box and after a reboot, the XP client manged to update GPO's, the event log errors went away.

    Many thanks again to both of you. :))

  • Hi,

    There should be a problem with the DFS cache as it didn't get pruged on the client.

    Run "dfsutil purgemupcache" on the server which is seeing the errors.

     

    Group policies are not applied the way you expect; "Event ID 1058" and "Event ID 1030" errors in the application log

    A Windows Server 2003-based computer may stop responding when it is resumed from standby and events 1030 and 1058 are logged in the application log of a domain controller

    Event 1030 and event 1058 may be logged, and you may not be able to start the Group Policy snap-in on your Windows Small Business Server 2003 computer

  • The error is not on the server, it was on the XP workstation. I may have to install dfsutil on the server as I can't find it.

  • Hi,

    You can download th support tools to use dfsutil. 

    Windows XP Service Pack 2 Support Tools

    Also check for the DNS settings in the XP workstation. Paste the unedited IP config all from the workstation.
