1030 and 1058 GPO errors after installing Server 2003 Hotfix KB958644 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We’ve been getting 1030 and 1058 GPO errors in the applications log of our domain servers; Server1 and Server2, every 5 minutes  since we installed Server 2003 Hotfix KB958644.  Actually the errors began 4 hours after the installation and restart, but there were no other changes to the servers that week.  Andthe errors stop for 1 - 5 hours and then resume again.

    The error is Source: Userenv,  Event ID 1058, User NT Authority \ system – Description: Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO on cd={E982EE…..} cn=plocies,cn=system, DC=**DC=**DC=**The file must be present at the location<\\our domain\SysVol\our domain\Policies\ E982EE…..\gpt.ini} > (Access is denied.) Group Policy processing aborted.”

    Both servers are Windows Standard Server 2003 SP2 with all current patches.

    The error doesn’t seem to be causing any actual function issues with our domain servers, web servers or clients.

    The DNS settings are fine and the file permissions on gpt.ini are set according to KB 290647.

    Any solutions or suggestions to resolve this issue will be appreciated.

  • Ivan,

    are the core services running? Is DNS healthy so you can resolve the dc's with their fqdn and the domain? Hare changes been made the last couple for weeks since the last reboot like the NIC driver updates?

    Troubleshooting suggestions can be found here:

    Hi,

     

    The 1030 and 1058 error can be caused by several aspects. I list some common ones for your references. Please check them one by one and let me know the result.

     

    1)If you access \\GroupPolicy_Path from one of PC clients, can you successfully access it?

     

    2)Verify that if Sysvol is properly shared on these DC's and Everyone has permission on it.

     

    3)Check on the Windows XP clients. Do they also have 1030 and 1058 logged in event viewer?

    If so, please refer to the following article to enable DFSClient on windows XP:

     

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

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314494/en-us

    4)These error messages can be also caused by DNS configurations. You can following to the below article to remove the DNS aspect:

     

    Userenv errors occur and events are logged after you apply Group Policy to computers that are running Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, or Windows 2000

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/887303/en-us to troubleshoot

    5)If Winlogon process tries to process group policies before other components are running, these error might be logged. Please refer to the workaround listed in following article to remove this kind of issue:

     

    Group Policy processing does not work and events 1030 and 1058 are logged in the
    Application log of a domain controller :

    6)Apply the lasted update:

    Event ID 1053 and 1058 appear in the Application log after you upgrade to Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 with Active Directory :

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883271/en-us

     

    If this problem still continues, please try to uninstall the hotfix and monitor if these errors are still logged.

     

    Let me know the result.
