Hi All

We have 2 x 2008 DC's in our network, i am logged onto the servers with a domain admin account but we seem to be having issues accessing policies folder on DC1 via \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\...   some folders allow access and some dont. If i logon to DC2 with the same account as DC1 i have access to all folders with no issues.

i have also logged on to the DC1 with the domain admin account and i have full access. After a restart of the server i initially had access to the folders but as soon as i opened GPO management it gives me access denied again.

Any help on this would be appreciated

hi,

1. try to rename your profile on effected DC (Dc1).
2. run the DCDIAG /V and see every thing is Ok and replication is working fine.

Hi,

1. its windows 8 or R2 ?
2. are you able to open GPMC.MSC ?
3. Do you have any error about policy in event log.
4. "Take the System State backup" and reset the permission on policy http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2838154
