Cannot modify SYSVOL logon scripts in Windows Server 2008

Hello, we've recently upgraded our domain to Server 2008. Since then, I cannot edit existing logon scripts. I store all the scripts in the SYSVOL\domain\scripts folder. I used to be able to edit and save the scripts. Now, all I can do is copy an existing one, but then can't save any changes to it. I get access denied if I save as. This account is an Enterprise Admin with full rights to the folder. The properties of the "Scripts" folder has the Read-Only box checked and greyed out. No matter what I do, I cannot save new or modify existing scripts. Please help. Thanks.

When you say primary, does that mean that you have others?  (There are no pdcs in active directory, btw).

If you have another, is replication working properly?

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

are you using a custom admin account (not the default admin)? If yes, the most likely user account control (UAC) is the cause....
What you can do is to start NOTEPAD on the DC, or whatever tool yo use to edit loginscripts, and execute it to run as administrator, click yes. Open the loginscript by navigating to it, edit it and you should be able to save it

It is the FSMO PDC. We have other DCs and replication is working properly.

Ran notepad as "Administrator", even though logged in account was an Enterprise admin. Once I browsed to the sysvol and modified the logon script, I was able to save it. Thank you!
