Map Network Drive using Group Policy

I am getting the error "This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object. I am trying to create a new policy for an OU to map a network drive. When I right click on the OU and select "Create a GPO in this domain and link it here.", I name the policy and click okay and then I get the error. I am trying to create the policy on the server connected using RDP and I am a domain admin.

So this problem happens is you try to create any kind of new policy, you don't start editing the policy right?

Check these things please...

Validate that your account or one of the groups that you belong is member of the Administrators group of the domain controller where you are connected

Check the Sysvol folder permissions to check if they were modified or if there is a missing permission that you need in order to create polices (files) there. You can help yourself with the Resultant Permissions tab for checking your resultant permissions

This happens before I can edit. How do you check the administrators group on a domain controller? I looks to me that you cannot do it the way that you would on a memebr server or workstation.

In the Active Directory Users and Computers console there is a group called "Administrators". This group gives you administrative privilege in all the DCs of your domain

THe standard console of local groups is not present in a DC, the local SAM is replaced by the AD DataBase SAM
