are you saying you can't open the group policy editor on a domain controller?

Ensure PDC master server is running and try editing GPO on PDC server
If still issue persists, reboot the server once.

Hi

This may be a corruption of the security permisons on the GPO. I have seen this before and the fix is to right click on the GPO in question and select 'Copy'. Then right click again and select 'Paste'. You should be asked to preserve the permissions of inherit them - do no preserve, go with the other option. This will create a new polci with the name of 'Copy of XXXXXX', XXXXXX being the name of the GPO you are haivng an issue with.

You should then be able to make the changes you need. If you can delete the 'dead' policy and rename the copied policy.

Let me know
Thanks
Mark/

If you logged on different server, still you getting same error?

If not, it might be that it is problem to that specific user profile and deleting profile should solve issue

U might try on same server with another domain admins ID

Can you please share screen shot please

If you can run below commands on PDC and share output please
dcdiag /v
dcdiag /test:netlogons
dcdiag /test:sysvolcheck

Also check event logs on DC under file replication services for event ID 13568 - Journal Wrap

From logs it turns out that either SDC (other DC) is not operational \ already demoted
The last successful replication between PDC and SDC is in year 24th Feb 2012
U need to do metadata cleanup for failed DC

If above SDC I still alive, you need to forcefully demote it with DCPromo /forceremoval command

Remove all its traces from AD, this includes, domain controller object, Host(A) record, PTR record, SRV record, NS record and any other trace from DNS

After that restart netlogon, File replication service and dns server service on PDC and check if it works
