Sorry, I meant that the service is required for successful GP processing. In other words, it must be running. Basically it's the thing that deals with converting a DFS share (i.e. SYSVOL) into something that Windows understands (i.e. a UNC) Darren From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Salandra, Justin Sent: Wednesday, February 13, 2008 5:46 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: Group Policy Error 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? Justin A.

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.

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.
