Hi all,

When I try to access the Group Policy Object > Computer Settings > Security Settings, my MMC hangs.

I have checked the event log, but only recieve a standard Application Hang event (ID 1002).

I have analyzed the security policy using the Security Configuration and Analysis Add-In.

I recieve an "Error Analyzing" message for every property of the Kerberos policy. Is this a corrupt database? If so how can I recover it? The server is in the setup stage, and I have not got round to a backup yet!

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

This is happening on both Domain Controllers in my AD.

Was a corrupt decedit.sdb
Sorted it with a 1 liner from command prompt:

secedit /configure /cfg %systemroot%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb

Lovely.
