dcgpofix not working -getting ldap error
Posted on 2006-10-27
today i denieid the apply group policy and the read permissions to the enterprise admins group for the default domain policy gpo with the hope of blocking certain settings from that group, what happened after was the gpo immediately went to "inaccessible", and the policies set to be applied across the domain were not applied tot the whole network. i deleted the link from the gpmc console then i went to the sysvol folder found the corresponding policy sid folder and gave the enterprise admin full control. i then ran the dcgpofix command and i am getting this error "could not open active directory object ldap:// etc" the specified sid id folder here have all the appropriate permissions. i need to know where else do i need to go to make changes so the command will follow through.
the default policy had some very important settings like the firewall on it so i recreated anothe rgpo linked it to the domain and put the settings on it, this works across the domain but if i go to the control panel/admin tools /domain security policy..........................i get an error because the shorcut still points to the original folder, i changed this on one dc to reflect the new gpo i created. which it then opened the the gpo for modification.
i still need to restore the original default policy please help,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,my solution is only a temporary one.
