Group Policy Objet - Appropriate Rights

Hi, hope everyone is well!

Small Business 2003 Server. Out of the box installation.

Some of my Window 98 clients are having issues logging on so i found some info regarding changing SMB on the server. At which point i go into Domain Controller Secuirty Policy on the server and I get:

"Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights." Details: The system cannot find the file specified.

I am logged on as Administrator.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thankyou

I'm assuming that you tried the fixes above and they did not work.

Have you finished the SBS installation?  I think there is a process to DCPROMO the server after the initial installation.

There should be another step to do.
