  • Group Policy Failed / No Files Access

    Hello, Dear Team,

    Since 1 week, my Files Services Access is not possible and it seems
    that the Policy is stopping on the Windows 2008 Server. I had a look on
    the Dell Server Administrator but there are not "Hardware problem".

    A different times, no users can access the File Services.
    When going on the server I see some Events regarding "Group Policy
    Failed", after rebooting the server manually directly from the server,
    everything is ok and all the users can go back to work on the different
    "Shared Folders".

    1) I noticed on the "Administratives Events" that the GROUP POLICY FAILED:

    "The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read
    the file
    \\truberries.local\sysvol\truberries.local\Policie s\{31B2F340-016D-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.

    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."

    2) After the Group Policy Failed, “Administrative Events” shows also that "Data Corruption may occur":
    • The driver detected that the device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has its write cache enabled. Data corruption may occur.
    • Volume
      Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine
      RegOpenKeyExW(-2147483646,SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\D iag,...).
      hr = 0x80070005, Access is denied.

    please let me know if you have heard about this issue, thank you!!!

    Group Policy should not affect shared folder access. The message about the computer not being able to access sysvol is often transient - unless you are seeing it a lot.

    When your staff are unable to access the shared resources on the server: Can they access the server by typing \\servername, or \\IP-Address. Can they ping the server both by name, FQDN and IP Address?

    Does it happen to everyone at the same time or does it just affect some staff?
