Cant access Group Policy's after domain Rename
Posted on 2008-11-07
We had to change the name of our domain because our parent company changed its name. We followed the 80+ page document that microsoft provided. However, Some things must have not been changed. When I try and open the Domain Security Policy or the Domain Controller Security Policy I get this error:
"Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights. The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted."
From we can tell, everything worked fine in the rename process. We never got any errors? DNS is updated, all of the workstations login to the new domain, all the shares work.
One other thing is that when I open ASDIEDIT, I see the old domain name on the "Domain" "Configuration" and "Schema"
I assume that somewhere in the process of renaming the domain we missed something or something did not update to the new domain correctly. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
