I get the attached error when I try to access a GPO object. What can I do to fix it? Looks like a permisissions issue and I dont want to do anything to mess up the permissions.

Sorry I was unable to attach and I talked to EE customer service who said it was a known issue and they are working on it.

The error says:

The permissions for the GPO in the SYSVOL volder are inconsistent with those in Active Directory. It is recommened that these permissions be consistent. To change the SYSVOL permissions to those in Active Directory,click ok.


I dont wan to click okay until I find out what the error could be and I wont damage anything. Thanks.

Rather than clicking OK to that message, first I would think it makes sense to make sure that the new folders you created are inheriting all of their permissions from the top-level SYSVOL folder.  I would think that would take care of any possible conflicts or missing permissions. When I look at the PolicyDefinitions folder on my domain, it is inheriting permissions from %systemroot%\sysvol\sysvol\[domain]\Policies.

Yes it is inheriting permissions correctly

Take a look at this KB article:

It seems to indicate that clicking OK is the right thing to do.
