I have a 2012 test server. I was messing around with a central store for gpo's. While I was creating the centralized store, I renamed the wrong folder. This caused group policy management to display an error that I couldn't find or read the GPO for the default domain policy. Before I figured out that I renamed the wrong directory, I deleted the default domain policy, so that I could recreate it. I later found that I had renamed the wrong directory in sysvol. But the damage was done and now I can't create a default policy.
I can't quite figure out how to recreate it. Can anyone help?
BTW I could easily just wipe the domain and start over, but I want to learn how to recover from an error like this incase I encounter a client who did something as stupid as me, but in production.
