When i select a group policy object in my gpmc and run the settings tab i get this error.

An error occurred while generating report Required permissions cannot be acquired

Any Ideas?

Thanks

That's pretty strange...almost like the report page isn't running the asp settings correctly.

I've not seen that error on EE or on google.

Can you reboot that server and see if it's just a fluke?
neon19Author Commented:
done that and nothing, its like a permissions error but all the delegation and everything is ok.

get this though, on the other domain server in the domain it works fine!!!!!!!

No GPO's are different for that machine?  I would compare the 2 machines (the one that isn't working and one that does)...compare the local security policy settings, particularly user rights assignment.  Is there anything different there?

nice, i havent seen that either, if logged in with admin does the same problem occur
TheCleanerCommented:
just a thought...what if you reinstall the GPMC?  (to be honest I've never done this, so you may want to make backups of your GPOs just in case it does something strange).

GPMC reinstall wont give you any grief ive done it numerous times, its just a viewer
TheCleanerCommented:
Good to know Jay_Jay70.

With the "extra features" it has over the regular group policy management, I didn't know if links would break or not.

Thanks.

been a long time on this one, any luck, can you finalise this question

if someone resolved for you then accept an answer if not and you solved yourself

would have assumed a reinstall as suggested by TheCleaner would have fixed this.. never heard back
TheCleanerCommented:
never heard back, like Jay Jay said, but he was right too in knowing that a reinstall wouldn't break links, etc.
