I have a freshly installed Windows 7 Ultimate connected to a Domain.  The DCs are 2008R2.

The connection to the domain went without error, however when I try to use GP Editor to connect to the Windows 7 box I am receiving an error:

Failed to open the Group Policy Object on <FQDN>. You may not have appropriate rights.

Details: The network path was not found.

I can see the box through AD and connect to it using RDP.

Any help would be appreciated.

I built a 2008R2 server using the same process and not having the problem.
