    Having problems with GPOs being applied.

    Here’s what happened or how I realized the issue. We setup a new company and set them up on a brand new subnet.

    Running a Windows Server 2003 Domain.

    Logged into Active Directory Sites and Services. Went into the subnet and created a new subnet for my new network called 10.12.0.0 with a 16 bit mask. Put the site under my primary data center site.

    Was able to join PC domain and login, but the login took a long time. After I got logged in, I noticed that there was an issue with the group policy being applied. My home page that gets set was not doing so. I opened up event viewer and I’m getting this message:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Userenv
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1054
    Date: 6/25/2011

    Computer: WPG-1678
    Description:
    Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. (An unexpected network error occurred. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at .

    When I try to browse out to a server by it’s unc it’s asking for a username and password. Once entered, I can get in.

    When I try to run a GPUPDATE I get the same userenv evt 1054 error. I see nothing wrong with the DNS setup on the PC. It’s pointed to my domain controller and I’m able to ping by IP address.

    On the server DNS event log I’m getting these messages:
    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: DNS
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 6702

    Description:
    DNS server has updated its own host (A) records. In order to ensure that its DS-integrated peer DNS servers are able to replicate with this server, an attempt was made to update them with the new records through dynamic update. An error was encountered during this update, the record data is the error code.

    If this DNS server does not have any DS-integrated peers, then this error
    should be ignored.

    If this DNS server’s Active Directory replication partners do not have the correct IP address(es) for this server, they will be unable to replicate with it.

    To ensure proper replication:
    1) Find this server’s Active Directory replication partners that run the DNS server.
    2) Open DnsManager and connect in turn to each of the replication partners.
    3) On each server, check the host (A record) registration for THIS server.
    4) Delete any A records that do NOT correspond to IP addresses of this server.
    5) If there are no A records for this server, add at least one A record corresponding to an address on this server, that the replication partner can contact. (In other words, if there multiple IP addresses for this DNS server, add at least one that is on the same network as the Active Directory DNS server you are updating.)
    6) Note, that is not necessary to update EVERY replication partner. It is only necessary that the records are fixed up on enough replication partners so that every server that replicates with this server will receive (through replication) the new data.

    Data:
    0000: 7c 26 00 00 |&..

    I’ve verifed there is an A record and the _MSDCS, _TCP, _UDP, _Sites, DomainDNSZone and ForestDNSZones look good and are populated with the correct information.

    I’ve tried recreating the primary zone by renaming the netlogon.dns and netlogon.dnb and restarting the netlogon service, but it did not make me create a new zone.
