SBS2011 Policy Folders Missing


I recently had to run the DCGPOFIX.exe on a SBS2011 server as both Default Domain Policy and Default Domain Controller Policy folders were missing.This was successfully however when I look at the list of Group Policy Objects in GPMC.MSC there seems to be some other folders missing. This server was migrated from a SBS2003 originally.

When I select the following objects I get a error message 'The system cannot find the specified file', and upon investigation the relating folders are missing.

Small Business Server Auditing Policy
Small Business Server Client Computer
Small Business Server Domain Password Policy
Small Business Server Folder Redirection
Small Business Server Internet Connection Firewall
Small Business Server Lockout Policy
Small Business Server Remote Assistance Policy
Small Business Server Windows Firewall

Can I recreate these policy folders manually? All other normal policies seem ok.

Thanks and kind regards,

Most of those policies are manually deleted when migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011, so there is no need to recreate them.

See this link for info:

Others that are missing may need to be recreated.
