Access Denied when trying to open RSoP.msc or use gpresult.exe

Last Modified: 2014-12-04
I am trying to edit the restricted group access policies in AD but am getting Access Denied error. I also get access denied when I try to use gpresult.exe.

I went to Start -> Run -> rsop.msc
It says the RSoP snap-in was unable to generate the RSoP data due to the error listed below: Access Denied.

But I am logged in as the domain adminstrator!
