Thanks David, Sorry, yes, I was thinking SYSVOL. One possibility here is
that the Default Domain Policy was renamed to something else. Use GPMC to
view the GUIDs of the GPOs in your domain-see if one of them is this default
domain policy.

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.
