How to open Domain Controller Security Policy when GPO fails.


Please help,I want to open Domain Controller Security Policy on a Windows 2000 Server running Exchange 5.5 This Server is in a domain with four other machines that the same NOS.

The message popping up is:

Failed to open the Group Policy Object.You may not have appropriate rights.
Server is not operational.

I am logging on as Administrator of the domain but do not where to apply the rights for the GPO.

Check to make sure Domain Admins have rights to the GPO.  I know we have removed those rights because of individuals making changes to GPO that we were not informed of.  It makes the administration alot easier.
