Both a Domain Admin and member of Administrators cannot edit Group Policy
from ADUC. I; however, with the same level of permissions am able to edit
it.

Here is what they get for an error message:

I get the following error when trying to open a Group
Policy Object with in GPMC:
Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have
appropriate rights. Details: The parameter is incorrect

Any ideas? Let me know.

Thanks, Toni P.

Hi Toni

I assume this issue doesn't occur if they open mmc.exe and add the Group
Policy snap-in? If so, ensure that the following is true:

Check to see whether the path for "Default" under
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSCFile\Shell\Open\Command is correct. This value should
be a REG_EXPAND_SZ (not REG_SZ) and should have the value:

%SystemRoot%\system32\mmc.exe "%1" %*

Kind regards

Yes, this is true on the server. What could I try next?

I look forward to anyone's reply on this.

Thanks in advance,

Mark,

Actually, this was not the case on my colleagues system. He can edit now;
however, now he is getting the following message "The following entry in the
[strings] section is too long and has been truncated".

He clicks OK and the message pops us about 20 more times and then he can
work. Any suggestions on how to get rid of this? Let me know.

Thanks,

Toni P.
