Administrative template imported into this GPO has some error in syntax. Can you export this ADM file and upload here for review, please?

Regards,
Krzysztof

install group policy management on  a windoes 7 or windows 2008 machine and run from there.

physically browse to the indicated folder and copy the ADM file out ( or rename them)  when you try and edit the GPO again, windows should copy the local machine from where you are editing ADM files over to server.

you might want to look at excluding the ADM files in the SYSVOL share, and keeping a cetral repository of ADM files, that way CUSTOM adm file/templates is availalbe when editing GPO's

(not suer if the GPO you are editing is from a customized ADM file)

if you browse to

\\(FQDN name of domain)\SYSVOL\(FQDN name of domain)\policies

do you see the GUID as reported in screenshot?

is the ADM folder under this just empty??

please make sure you have the fodler options to show hidden files and show system files enabled
(cant remembe if ADM files is considered system files)

not sure why your ADM files are missing, the fact that there is only 2 GUID's means that it probably is the default domain policies.  BTW  never delete the default domain and domain controller policy
