Cause

If the primary network adapter in a multihomed domain controller does not have file and printer sharing bound to it, multiple problems are logged or displayed when you attempt to work with Group Policy objects on the domain controller.

Windows 2000 is attempting to access its Sysvol share through the primary network adapter to read the group policies. Because the share is unavailable through that adapter, the operation does not work.

Resolution

Change the binding order of the network adapters so that the adapter that is listed at the top of the Connections list has file and printer sharing bound to it:
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network and Dial-up Connections.
  2. On the Advanced menu, click Advanced Settings.
  3. In the Connections box, click the network adapter with "File and Printer Sharing" bound to it.
  4. Click the arrow buttons on the right side to move the adapter to the top of the list.
  5. Click OK.
After you fix the binding order of the two network adapter cards, you receive the following informational message in the Application event log:
