Event ID :1058 missing sysvol path for gpt.ini RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have 2x 2003 Standard R2 SP2 branch domain controllers which are both having the following issue:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Userenv
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1058
    Date:  13/06/11
    Time:  2:01:55 p.m.
    User:  GABNZ\clai
    Computer: NZTRG01
    Description:
    Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO cn={4E1C755B-38D2-40B8-9EB2-DE3F0533F15E},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=wan,DC=gabrobins,DC=co,DC=nz. The file must be present at the location <\\wan.gabrobins.co.nz\SysVol\wan.gabrobins.co.nz\Policies\{4E1C755B-38D2-40B8-9EB2-DE3F0533F15E}\gpt.ini>. (The system cannot find the path specified. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    Both are running DFS which seems to be replicating ok. Initially I had an issue with GPOs not replicating through to these 2 DCs and so found these logs on both server. I've browsed to the namespace indicated and noticed the path where the gpt.ini is suppose to be is missing completely!

    I've only recently taken over this network so am not sure how this might have happened.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Generally, UserEnv 1058 errors can be related by one of several factors. For example,

    1. Incorrect permission. For instance, incorrect ACL on Sysvol may cause this issue.

    2. Corrupt DFS cache. Due to corrupt Dfs cache, the problematic DC may be referred to incorrect target to obtain the GPT.

    3. Insufficient privilege. In some cases, insufficient user right may also cause this issue.

    4. Mismatched security configuration. Sometimes, we may configure mismatched security settings such as SMB signature. 

    Meanwhile, to troubleshoot this issue, we may check the detailed error code in the UserEnv 1058 to see what happens when trying to apply group policy. For example, sometimes, we can get "Access Denied" or "the specified path couldn't be found". Then, we can check corresponding configurations according to that code.

    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

  • We are getting this exact error on one of our domain controllers relating to our Default domain policy.

    I have followed these all the way throug:

    Is it possible for me to use the MPS report tool and upload our results?

  • It just happend in my lab today and i found a fix for that so thought share. This event log details showing showing that your defualt domain policy has been corrupted. and you need to use a tool here named:-

    dcgpofix/

    Go to cmd with administrative rights, and throw following command:-

    dcgpofix /ignore:schema /target:domain

    Press Y twice for confimation, and its done. you will be able to see gpt.ini fle in default domain policy group in sysvol and all will be set down. 

    if you have more query or concents, please visit notjustlab.wordpress.com.
