I am having some trouble modify group policy through gpmc.msc in SBS 2003 Standard SP2.

When I edit a GPO it does not show the objects from system.adm

I have checked and all the correct .adm files are listed as installed, and I have re-loaded them (downloaded from Microsoft, copied from working servers etc)

All group policies work correctly, and I can view the settings of each properly.

I am a domain admin and have tried with several other accounts.

Also gpedit.msc for local group policy on the DC works fine.

Anyone come across this before?  Thanks

Please lookup Microsofts KB816662.  I do not believe it is possible for you to view the system.adm at this time.  See the Microsoft Knowledge base article for more information

Thanks for your post, it was useful.

I have set the "Always use local ADM files for Group Policy Object Edit" to enabled in gpedit on the DC and this has made a difference:

Existing GPO’s work the same as before, the system.adm does not load up.
New GPO’s now show the system.adm settings but now it also shows “Application error reporting” in English and about 10 other languages.

How do I get the existing GPO’s to show the system.adm and also get rid of the other languages?
