Cannot Create Group Policy

Hi,

we have a client that is struggling to create group policies in there domin.

there setup is a 2003 Domain with multiple servers including SQL, FileServer and Exchange.

when they try and edit and create a GPO they receive the following error

"Failed to Create New Group Policy Object. You May not have appropriate rights
Details - Not enough server storage is available to process this command"

after googling the error i found these two MS Support Links but they dont work..
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/285089 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304101 

Any Ideas?

What type of permissions does the account they are using have? By default only domain admins have access to create group policies unless that right has been delegated to other users.

"To create a GPO, you must have GPO creation privileges. By default only domain administrators, enterprise administrators, and members of the Group Policy creator owners group can create Group Policy objects. To delegate GPO creation permissions to additional groups and users, go to Group Policy Objects in the desired domain and click the Delegation tab."

Well on first glance I would say they don't have permissions to create Group Policy objects. Make sure the user is in the group "Group Policy Creator Owners". As well I would suggest that you try creating them directly on the Domain Controller itself just to test and make sure it is not a DNS/AD issue.

Check the space on the PDC emulator?   Are they modifying from their machines or on the DC (although it should not matter).

What error messages are you seeing in the event logs?

Thanks

ok, i am seeing this message now, nothing has changed apart form the two MS Links above

"Not enough server storage is available to process this command"

the server has 36.4gb free on the primary partition

i have tried creating a new account and trying again but still does the same.

I would recommend trying directly from one of the DC's to determine if this is a AD/DNS issue.

Did you create the IRPStackSize key, and what value did you set?

Also, did you restart the server service after setting a value?

Check the permission sysvol folder.
Enable File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks on the NIC setting if not enabled.
If the IRPStackSize is created increase the vaule by 3 and reboot the server for the setting to take effect and then try.

yes i created the IRPStackSize ket and its set to the value of 0x00000032 (50)

the permission on the sysvol folder has full administrators group access
and file and printer sharing is enabled

isnt the IRPStackSize at its maximum? according to the MS link? or have i misread it?

good answers guys, thanks
