I'm getting the following error on two of my domain member

servers (both win2k3sp1):

Event Type:    Error
Event Source:    Userenv
Event Category:    None
Event ID:    1058
Date:        6.12.2006
Time:        9:01:57
User:        NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:    RIVER03
Description:
Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO

CN={33B07064-3C8C-4337-BD6A-3425D3FB0B18},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=river,DC=local.
The file must be present at the location
<\\river.local\SysVol\river.local\Policies\{33B07064-3C8C-4337-BD6A-3425D3FB0B18}\gpt.ini>. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

I've checked numerous settings as follows:

- that the folder is actually accessible, and the file actually exists
- registry settings on these client machines pertaining to SMB signing:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters
enablesecuritysignature 1
requiresecuritysignature 0
- SMB signing group policy at
Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local
Policies/Security Options
- DNS settings
- Permissions on the SYSVOL share
- NetBIOS helper service

Everything appears to be in order, but I'm still getting the USERENV error
either every 1.5 hours or so, or when I force a GP update.

Please help!
