Group Policy Object. You might not have the appropriate rights?

Last Modified: 2018-05-24
I've recently transferred all the roles from an old SBS to 2012 R2 server and netdom query fsmo confirms they have all been transferred to the new server fine.
However when I try an edit old GPO's I get the Failed to open the Group Policy Object you might not have the appropriate rights - network name cannot be found.
If I open GPO on the old Server it still opens and I can edit them however I can see they are still tied to the old server name not the new.

Usually when I've transferred the roles before GPO shows the new Server name in the GPO Editor and I don't have this problem.
Also should I worry about Raising the domain functional level? it's currently set for Windows Server 2003 ( not sure if this really matters?)

Any recommendations how I can get all the GPO's transferred properly to the new Server?

Many Thanks in Advance
