I can start Group Policy Management in Domain Controller but not in member server(MBRSVR1)

If I sign on with local administrator (MBRSVR1\Administrator) in member server, I got an error ask me to logon as a domain user. (See capture1)

If I sign on Domain\Admin,  I got this error.  (See capture2)

Any suggestion what need to do.

Can you run it from another member server with domain admin credentials? Your member server in question running Server 2008? IE9 installed?

The computer must be joined to the domain.  There is a trust established when joined and the various tools that are used to manage the domain need to be run from a Domain computer and user account.  If you logon locally and the device was not join the Domain does not trust this device as a valid device object.

yo_bee, I think the author mentioned that the error from capture2 is when logged on as a domain admin on the domain. Just FYI.

Just make sure that if you're member server is running Server 2008 that it's not running IE9. Lots of issues with MMC if IE9 is installed.

Ok. Not likely an MMC thing then. Can you open GPMC from any other member server?
