Hi,

I have a domain controller (W2K) with active diretory and SP4 installed on
it. I had configured certain domain controller group policies.

Recenly I installed microsoft exchange server 2000 with service pack 3 on
the same domain controller. After doing so I am not able to get access to
the domain controller security policies and not even to the domain security
policies.

While I try to open it, it says " Failed to open the group policy object.
You may not have appropriate rights." though I login as administrator
privilage.
Need help on this

Regards and Thanks
Vikrant

Hi Vikrant,

Pls take a look at this.

Group Policy Error Message When Appropriate Sysvol Contents Are Missing
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253268

You may also use the tool gpotool for troubleshooting.

Denis

Hi Vikrant,

So are you sure you do not have any policy missing? Are you using Domain
Admins right? Have you tried the gpotool. It could give you some clue.

br,
Denis

Dear Denis

I checked using the gpotool and tried using all the sysntax and everytime
it sayz OK

below is the extracted result.

C:\Program Files\Resource Kit>gpotool /checkacl
Validating DCs...
Available DCs:
universe.moi.gov.om
Mercury.moi.gov.om
Searching for policies...
Found 7 policies

Policies OK

But still I am not able to connect to the domain gpo.
It is really behaving weired.
I tried installing the same in another server (test lab) and there also it
is the same, not able to open the domain gpo.
I am sure it need some major attention.

Pls help.

Vikrant

Hi Denis,

No actually!! That switch didnot give me any clues. but someway I corrected
the problem. connected to one of the additional DC. made another policy from
new. and everything started working. Only I am not been able to see my old
policies. but they are still active and working fine.
I also had problems with the user password options (users were denied to
login to the DC after the option of changing the password during the first
logon was selected). that also got corrected because of the GPO.
Thanks for uor help and efforts

Regards
Vikrant

That almost sounds like a DNS/ replication issue to the other DC
