When I try to open the domain controller security snap-in on my ws2k3 machine, I receive an error stating: "Group Policy Error: Failed to open GPO. You may not have apprpopriate rights. Details: A referral was returned from the server."

I am attempting to access through the link under administrative tools using the administrator account.

What might cause this problem?
