After i changed my AD domain name  from vietmail.vn to cafeit.org on my win2k3 DC, i get an errors like below when i try to open "Domain controller security policy" and "Domain security policy"
(using Administrator account)

 "Group Policy Error: Failed to open GPO. You may not have apprpopriate rights. Details: A referral was returned from the server."

What might cause this problem?

hi jordannet,

thanks for your response,

i have tried a solution that you recommend on the link above before but it did not work at all.

after a day surfing on the internet to look for solution and luckily i found one. what we need to to is just  click:

Start --> programs --> Administrative tools --> right click on "Domain Controller Security Policy" and change "DC = your new AD domain name" on the Target attribute. for example "DC=cafeit, DC=org"

Do the same for "Domain Security Policy".

It works perfectly. Recommend this for all who have the same problem.
