I have a Windows 2003 AD enviroment.  This enviroment has been running for sometime.  When I create a new policy on the pdc emulator, the policy can be seen on other DCs.  However, when you attempt to edit it you recieve the error "Failed to open the Group Policy Object.  You may not have appropriate rights.".  In the details pane it states "The System Cannot find the path specified.". The account being used is an Enterprise account.  I have checked the permissions, FRS service, and made sure that these accounts were able to ping one another.

This was caused by the sysvol folder not replicating.  For this instance, an authoritive restore on one of the DC's fixed the issue since all remote dc's talk to it.
