GPO Access denied in AD

Hello, I have a windows 2008 SBS server and I get GPO Access Denied wihen I try to open the group policy.  I am logged in as the Domain Administrator.

When I am in the GPO application I can see the delegation and it looks like all the other GPOs that I can access.  It shows Domain Admins as FULL control

I used dsacls to give access to domain admins and enterprise domains

What else can I do to get access?

If you run gpresult /h C:\gpreport.html will you see any reason for the GPO Access denied?
Can you upload gpreport.html for us?

Or you can't open Group Policy Management Console (GPMC)? I think you also installed MS16-072 \ KB3163622?
Note by default that the “Authenticated Users” must have “Read” and “Apply Group Policy” on all Group Policy Objects in an Active Directory Domain.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Do you use security filtering in GPO's?

Yes and we see:
Access Denied (Security Filtering)

Do you want it so?

no, I don't believe so...   I want to get access through domain administrator and I want the policies to apply some should be filtered (If I am understanding correctly not applied to every system) but I should have access to make changes.

Check Security Filtering in the following GPO's:

- Update Services Server Computers Policy
- Update Services Client Computers Policy
- Windows SBS User Policy

Also check WMI Filtering in the following GPO's:
- Windows SBS CSE Policy

Hello hopeleonie,

Here is what I have under the Security Filtering Sections:
 Update Services Server Computers Policy
               - Servers listed
     
- Update Services Client Computers Policy
               - Security filtering for Authenticated Users and a lot of computers listed...

- Windows SBS User Policy
              - specific user (administrator ID that is not used)

Oh..
 - Windows SBS User Policy
    shows "Windows SBS Client",  under the WMI Filtering

When I click on the button in the WMI Filtering section it shows
   Windows SBS CSE Policy
  Windows SBS User Policy

I right clicked on Group Policy Management and "ran as administrator" and I had access.  Yahoo!
