I was trying to deny a group policy for domain admins and I accidently denied all access to the organization unit to domain admins.   If I remember correctly System and Enterprise admins had inherited security.    Is is possible to "Un-Deny" the Org Unit?  what should i log on as?

Protecting the Administrator Account
Every installation of Active Directory has an account named Administrator in each domain. This account cannot be deleted or locked out. In Windows Server 2003, the Administrator account can be disabled, but it is automatically re-enabled when you start the computer in Safe Mode

Safe mode or directory services restore mode?  Tried safe mode and could not sign on as administrator.
the Administrator is not supposed to be locked out in Safe mode. Note don't just rely on being an administrator.

Either I don't remember the password or it's locked.  I guess I will try one of the other domain controllers in safe mode, will post progress as i go, thanks.

Ok, found an answer:
Create a new user, delegate it full rights at the domain level but not a member of domain admins and when you open the console as the user you should be able to see the OU.
