Hi,
I've a problem on my Windows Server SBS 2003.
I cannot access in

Administrative Tools -> Domain Controller Security Policy

or

Administrative Tools > Domain Security Policy

The error I got is:
Group Policy Error:

Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights. 

Open in new window


How can I solve this issue?
Thank you

Ok, i hope you have installed the Group policy management console on the server, if so, start>>run>>gpmc.msc >>Once the GP management console opened, you can expand and navigate to the appropriate policies.
