"No settings defined" when viewing GPOs but GPOs have settings in them

Hi chaps

I'm finishing the migration from a 2003 DC to a 2008 DC. Everything has gone fine so far but I've found that when I open up Group Policy Management on either server and click the Settings tab of a GPO it tells me "No settings defined" for both computer and user settings. However if I actually edit the GPO and navigate through the GPO settings then I can see that everything is there.

GPO's do appear to be being applied and changes to the GPOs do appear to replicate between servers. It's just that GP Management at both ends tells me that there are no settings in the GPOs which worries me.

Has anyone seen this? Replmon says that replications are successful and DNS between teh servers is fine (one can ping the other, the other can ping back etc).

Don't think i'm crazy...

Try to add localhost and about:security in the trusted or intranet zone of Internet Explorer.
Low the security level for those zones, if needed.

Have you run during preparing domain

adprep /gpprep on your Infrastructure master (mostly used with adprep /domainprep)

Hi ienaxxx. I've added those two sites to IE trusted zone but that didnt work I'm afraid.

Krzysztof, The 2008 server is actually an SBS 2011 server, and before the migration started we had to run the migration assistant which claims to make a number of changes and applies updates to the 2003 server. However what those were I'm not 100% sure.

OK, it's an SBS, so I'm not big expert on that field. Please wait for another guys from SBS :)
Thanks in advance.
