    It should point to itself first, then other DNS servers second and third etc... and optionally external DNS servers last.
    On the problem server it does point to itself first, this was one of the first things I checked.

    If you locate the workstation Computer Object in Active Directory, (where you ran gpupdate) this should allow you to narrow down which GPO is creating the issue in Group Policy Management, unless you have absolutely loads of linked GPOs?

    I'm not sure of a way to link a GPO to a SID as they're all randomly created for your domain.

    That's correct. Server 2008 or later allow you to have Read Only Domain Controllers as an option.

    By inserting your installation disc and running:

    Code:
    adprep /rodcprep
    You can do this live on your FSMO role holder without restarting the server. This will then replicate out to your other DCs. When you run dcdiag that error should no longer appear.

    even without this i shouldn't be getting this error when doing a gp-update on the printserver..

    May have to flatten it and build it again.

    Still having problems with this, I don't really want to flatten the server and start again

    If everything else runs OK on the server and depending what other services you're running on it, you could run dcpromo, demote it as a DC reboot then re-promote it as a DC. Any bad info would be lost as it would replicate from the remaining good DCs.

    If DNS etc... is correct then in theory you should be able to demote. If it isn't correct you will get errors that's for certain.
