Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.

Cannot open logon scripts on DC's other than on the Main DC.
I have 4 DC's throughout my Domain, but only the Main DC can open/edit the logon scripts that are assigned to GPOs. If I attempt to open/edit a script through any of my other DC's I get the following error: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
I am logged in with my account, which is a Domain Admin, and can edit the file(s) fine on the Main DC. I have also attempted to open/edit the files by exploring the SYSVOL share but I receive the same error on the 3 DC's.
My first question is: If I cannot edit/open the scripts through the 3 DC's, is there a utility I can use to log whether the scripts are running for the end-user or not?
My second question is: Why can I not edit/open these files through my 3 DC's?
I am running a Windows 2003 Domain, all 4 DC's are Windows 2003, with Windows XP workstations.
