I am looking at the the gpmc in Windows 2003 server and i have two gpo's applied at the domain level, both of them now read inaccessible. I traced the SId's using this path on a domain controller\\servername\SYSVOL\domain name.com for both of them and gave the administrator full control of them but they still read inaccessible. Whats the solution to this problem?

Hi,
It sound like your Group Policy objects become corrupted, you may need to run dcgpofix
check this:

Thanks

The dcgpofix worked for the default gpo but how do i go about fixing the others that are corrupted , or should i just delete it and do them over.
