    These event just started appearing a day or two ago, but they continue to repeat every 5 minutes:

    Event 1030:
    Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

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


    Event 1058:
    Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=bbpi-pdc,DC=billsblue,DC=com. The file must be present at the location <\\bbpi-pdc.billsblue.com\sysvol\bbpi-pdc.billsblue.com\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Windows cannot find the network path. Verify that the network path is correct and the destination computer is not busy or turned off. If Windows still cannot find the network path, contact your network administrator. ). Group Policy processing aborted.


    They occur exactly every five minutes, and always in this order. I searched for the gpt.ini file it's looking for and found it.

    I don't really have any group policies in place, just basic users and computers. Nothing fancy. And I'm afraid I don't quite understand AD enough to just 'experiment' until I make these error go away.

    Any ideas and/or guidance would be welcome.... thanks :)

    One possibility:
    As per Microsoft: "This behavior may occur if the following conditions are true: your Windows XP-based computer is a member of a domain, and the Microsoft Distributed File System (DFS) client is turned off (disabled). To resolve this issue, turn on (enable) the DFS client". See M314494 to find out how to do this. Also check M810907 for a hotfix.

    This applies to my situation:

    Other posts from Microsoft engineer suggest that if a domain controller is multi-homed (more than 1 network card) they may experience this problem (note that "network card" could mean a physical or a virtual one - i.e. VMWare or VPN virtual adapters). The posts also indicate that the Client for Microsoft Networks and the File and Printer Sharing services have to be bound to the network adapter.

    I was getting a different DNS error, which is now gone. I fixed it by only binding FPS to a single NIC, instead of both. Apparently, that is causing this error... good times.

    i fixed that "Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this."
    i couldnt open my Domain Controller Security Policy so i went into my sites and services and took off one of my policies under my default site. i didnt need it so i blew it away but it probably had a setting in there messed up? thats what i found, good luck
