I have a windows 2000 domain, which has three DC's two windows 2000, and one windows 2003. I've recently updated a policy for strong passwords, and this has been successful. However upon trying to update, i get an error message: "Security Templates windows cannot update the policies"

I've tried updating from my xp pc, the win2k, and the win 2003 servers, but get the same error message.

Any ideas?
