I am running Metaframe 1.8 on a Windows 2000 server SP4.  I have this system locked down with GPO.  This policy is working, however, I am no longer able to access the 'gpt.ini" from gpedit.  I am receiving a message that reads: "The snapin below, referenced in this document has been restricted by policy.  Contact your administrator for details."  I have made no changes to this policy since the last time I viewed it.  The only thing I have done is update this server with the latest Microsoft service pack and patches.  Can anyone let me know how to get back in to this file?

Thanks CCEtech:

I too found this article, but the problem I have is I do not find MMC following HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\ as the article indicates.  I only see HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\System Certificates.

Have you tried accessing it remotely? If this server is on a network, try connecting to it via another computer by going to \\%Servername%\Windows\system32\GroupPolicy\ and then right-click on gpt.ini and go to Properties, Security. You can then add the administrator account if it isn't already in there.

Hey CCEtech:

I can access the file directly from the Metaframe server and set the permission on that particular file.  Administrator has full control with deny access to Read, so that this policy is not applied to administrators.  The way I usually edit this file is by removing "Deny Read Access" to the file and then launching "gpedit" per Microsoft's suggestion.  This has been working just fine for almost 2 years.  Anyway I am now being denied access when I try to launch gpedit.
