object picker problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.general (More info?)

Hello,
we're trying to add a group to a user in active directory.
Our domain is 2003 but we're using windows 2000 prof. and windows 2000
tools. Our system adm. is telling us that the problem is about
connecting windows 2003 domain with 2000 tools. I don't believe him and

I'm trying to prove the real cause.
When I open the user's details and choose "member of" and click on
"add" I get the following error:
"Object picker cannot open because no locations from which to choose
objects could be found. " and after clicking ok "parameter incorrect"


I've found in the technet following articles:
816818
------------------------------­--------------------------
In our domain reaching the registry with 3rd party softwares is
disabled from policy.
and remote registry services are working on all dcs. But we can't
connect to dcs registries with regedit
we get the following error:
"Unable to connect to xxxdc. Make sure that this computer is on the
network has remote administration enabled, and that both computers are
running the remote registry service"


the computer is on the network, I don't know where to check remote
administration and the remote registry service are running on both
computers.

These shares exist on dcs. But access denied for ipc$ I don't know if
it's normal
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++­++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++­++++


I am quiet sure that this is not a windows 2000 adminpak problem.
Please help me to resolve this issue
Thank you
