  • Event ID 1058 Error Code 64 can't read gpt.ini

    Alright, here's the details:

    Windows 7 SP1 domain client domain is 2003R2. Group policy is not applying, found a 1058 in event viewer:

    Error 1/25/2012 1:50:18 PM GroupPolicy 1058 None

    It appears after every restart, here's the full event text:

    Code:
    Log Name:      System
    Source:        Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy
    Date:          1/25/2012 1:50:18 PM
    Event ID:      1058
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Error
    Keywords:      
    User:          SYSTEM
    Computer:      pc1.mydomain.com
    Description:
    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\mydomain.com\sysvol\mydomain.com\Policies\{6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9}\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.

    </Event>
    I have verified that sysvol is accessible on all 3 DCs, verified that the file specified in the error details is accessible on all 3 DCs, verified that sysvol is properly replicated, verified that DNS is working properly, removed, renamed and re-added the PC, verified that time sync is happening properly, (time source DC1.mydomain.com).

    When I run rsop on the problem client, I get the following on the computer configuration section:

    Code:
    Group Policy Infrastructure failed due to the error listed below.
    The specified network name is no longer available.
    Note: Due to the GP Core failure, none of the other Group Policy components processed their policy. Consequently, status information for the other components is not available.
    While there are no errors or warning listed on the user configuration section.

    We have many other Win7SP1 clients on this domain, and none of the rest are having this issue.

    I have googled this to death, and I find lots of results for every other error code, but not may for error code 64.

    I'm going to the tavern to see if a beer or 3 will help the old brain come up with some new ideas, but in the meantime, suggestions are welcome.

    TIA

    Re: Event ID 1058 Error Code 64 can't read gpt.ini

    This reeks of a DNS problem
    Two things:
    1) If I wrote something wrong please please please let me know. I want to know ESPECIALLY if I am wrong.
    2) I have a tendency to write things that are misconstrued as being agressive or not so pleasant. That is not my intent.

      This reeks of a DNS problem
      I can resolve FQDN of all DCs and the FQDN of the problem client from all DCs. Is there something else that I should be looking for?

        Any chance you can browse to that the sysvol at all from the local machine via the run/search box (I have no idea what to call that comglomeration in Win7)

          Yes, I can access the sysvol share, and the gpt.ini referenced in the error text on every DC from the client wirth the issue.

            Any chance you are using restricted groups at all?

                The plot thickens. This is the output from gpupdate on the problem client:

                Code:
                C:\>gpupdate
                Updating Policy...
                User Policy update has completed successfully.
                Computer Policy update has completed successfully.
                The following warnings were encountered during computer policy processing:
                The Group Policy Client Side Extension Software Installation was unable to apply one or more settings because the change
                s must be processed before system startup or user logon. The system will wait for Group Policy processing to finish comp
                letely before the next startup or logon for this user, and this may result in slow startup and boot performance.
                For more detailed information, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html from the command line to access inf
                ormation about Group Policy results.

                I logged off, then back on and I get a 1501 event:

                  After the reboot, I'm getting the identical 1058 event. Any ideas?
