Building on what Darren just said, in the past I've had good luck fixing
oddball issues that just affect a single user/machine by the sledgehammer
method of removing from, then rejoining the domain.

 

It's great when you can figure out the root cause of something like this,
but sometimes you just need to get up and running again quickly.

Whenever one of my users logs in or runs gpupdate,  he gets this error:

 

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO
CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=domain,DC
=name,DC=edu. The file must be present at the location
<\\domain.name.edu\sysvol\domain.name.edu\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-
00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini
<file:///\\domain.name.edu\sysvol\domain.name.edu\Policies\%7b31B2F340-016D-
11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9%7d\gpt.ini> >. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy
processing aborted.

 

I am just starting to research, but figured, I would pose the question with
this group as well, to determine where I should start the troubleshooting

 

Thanks
