Error trying to open Group policy Management Editor in Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-03-19
When trying to open and make changes to an existing group policy in Server 2008 R2, I receive the following error. "Group Policy Error, failed to open the group policy object, you may not have appropriate rights."
I was just making some final changes to this group policy object on this new server and was about to create a backup of the settings. So, unfortunately I can't restore the policy settings from backup. I think I remember a similar issue from Serve 2003 where I was able to use volume shadow copy to restore a registry.pol or something to that effect to get this back working again, but I'm not sure.
Is there a way to fix this issue? Thanks for your assistance.
