Ok I have a machine that is the only machine in a domain, so obviously it's a DC.

Today I tried to edit the GPO policies for the domain and domain dc's.  When I tried to open them I was thrown an error, see image.

I found this article about the issue.  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/294257

When I got to step 6, the C:\Windows\Sysvol\Sysvol\DOMAIN\ directory doesn't exist; and it's not hidden.

Yes I'm logged in as an administrator.

Any suggestions?

That's not good.

hmm....  It's a virtual machine and I have a backup of the VM from a long time ago.  But this could have been this way for a long time.

I guess I'll have to play.

Thanks.

The domain is very basic, so recreating SYSVOL isn't a big deal to start from scratch.

Following the KB:

I was able to do this.
