Group Policy Errors
Posted on 2003-12-03
Getting Message - Event Id 16650
The account-identifier allocator failed to initialize properly. The record data contains the NT error code that caused the failure. Windows 2000 will retry the initialization until it succeeds; until that time, account creation will be denied on this Domain Controller. Please look for other SAM event logs that may indicate the exact reason for the failure.
If I try to open domain security policy or domain controller security policy I get The Message:
Failed to open the group ploicy object, you may not have the appropriate rights..
The specified domain controller either does not exist or could not be contacted...
The network consists of three windows 2000 advanced servers, all of which are domain controllers, with server 1 being the global catalog..
I know nothing about policys and these systems are in accounting and only have 2 users, talk about overkill.....
