Can you elaborate on 


-- Disabled TCP/IP Netbios helper service (required for GP)


What do you mean by this?


Why is disabling that service required for GP?  What is it that that
service does?

Quick question-is this impacting both per-computer and per-user policy
or just per-computer? There's a bunch of reasons for those errors. All
of them come down to the workstation being unable to read the contents
of AD or SYSVOL related to the GPO. Since you say you've eliminated DNS
as the problem, here are a couple of other reasons.


-- Disabled TCP/IP Netbios helper service (required for GP)

-- Failed SYSVOL replication on the DC where the client is grabbing
policy (run GPOTool.exe to see if this is an issue)

-- Permissions are tweaked on SYSVOL part of GPO such that computer or
user does not have perms. To read them.



Those are starting points. Let us know if none of those show up and we
can go from there.

Good mourning,

                       I am new to this mailing list and would like to
ask your help on a problem I have been having with Group Policies, I
have searched the internet but none of the results have helped. First I
have two domain controllers running 2003 R2 and all XP2 workstation on a
single domain with dell workstations 650&670 (this is a classified
network so there is no outside connectivity). All of the workstation are
logging the same error (userenv 1030 Windows cannot query for the list
of Group Policy objects. A message that describes the reason for this
was previously logged by the policy engine.) It makes no difference if I
log on as a user or an administrator the error is still generated. I
have run netdiag, dcdiag with no errors. I have also enabled the userenv
log and have found the following errors (USERENV(2d8.150) 08:05:38:720
ProcessGPOs: GetGPOInfo failed). I have run Group Policy results wizard
and these are the results (see attached). I have tried updating the
Ethernet drivers to no avail. 


 It seems like a problem with permissions or maybe DNS, but the
permissions seem to me to be correct and there are no errors within DNS
which is AD integrated, can any see anything that I am missing or have
not looked for.



Thank You
