OK, you posted an 'ls' search path:

ls -ld /var/lib/samba/sysvol/hprs.local/policies/\{*

Which produced output like this:

drwxrwx---+ 4 root 3000000 4096 2014-08-29 13:19 

When I try a similar 'ls' search on one of my DCs, I get this:

  adminuser at rpidc1:~ $ sudo ls -ld 
ls: cannot access '/var/lib/samba/sysvol/samdom.example.com/policies': 
No such file or directory

However, I do have the path:


Notice that that the policies directory name starts with an uppercase P

Try renaming the policies directory from 'policies' to 'Policies'.
