Well certainly the container [as viewed from ADUC] could appear empty
right Darren?  Safe to assume you were referring to the template in
SYSVOL?

        Empty isn't good. That would explain the missing file message. I
presume you are viewing this on the PDC emulator DC? If not, try seeing
if that's any different. If you already are on that server, then use
dcgpofix to repair it.

        I do see the folder: {31B2........ but the folders below
(Machine and User are empty.

         

        I am not concerned about loosing policies, the few I had can be
recreated.

        I'm a little surprised that its actually gone! If you go into AD
U&C, and open up the System\Policies container, do you see a GUID-named
folder that starts with {31B2 ?

         

        Assuming the answer to the previous question is no, then I would
try running dcgpofix.exe, which is available on Win2k3 server, to
restore that GPO.

        Recently while trying to set password policy, I found I have no
Default Domain Policy.

         

        When I run Group Policy Management It says: "No settings
defined."  for both computer and user configuration.  

         

        When I click on "Default Domain Policy" under "Group Policy
Objects",  The dialog box says: "The system cannot find the file
specified."  

         

        I have a GP object created to set the proxy server for users
that is working and is configurable.

         

        How do get the Default Domain Policy back?

         

        I have 3 Windows Server 2003 and 1 2000 domain controllers.  The
2k DC will soon be retired.
