Event ID 1030 and 1058 when querying Group Policy Objects

by on Nov.26, 2008, under Window Small Business Server 2003, Windows Server 2003

After a Windows 2003 Small Business Server failed to shutdown using APC’s PowerChute UPS software, it was having trouble querying and applying the group policy settings.


Event 1058

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1058

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=domain,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <\\Random_Domain_Name.local\sysvol\domain.local\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.i ni>

Event 1030

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event ID: 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.

Successful repair steps taken:

  1. Download and install the Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 Support Tools.
  2. Once installed, open the command prompt and run: dfsutil /PurgeMupCache
  3. Then run: gpupdate /force
  4. Examine the Application Event log for Event ID 1704
