Hi James,   
Thanks for the info!
I don't know where my orange shirt, but I will have to dig it out for the 30th! 
   I do have my R, W, & B one.  
Where are you working in Holland?

Hi, its James from the (US) but working in Holland.  I have my orange T-shirt 
I would use this as only a last resort and I think it is only for W2003 -- not 
100% sure though.  Perhaps someone else in the group knows for sure if it will 
work on W2k.  
The Recreatedefpol.exe was for W2k (ONLY).  Not sure what server version your 
DC's are.  
Do you have any backups of the GPO's?  
Here are some other articles to review before making the decision which route 
you want to take.

          Take a look at this article 
        I believe the tool that you are looking for is Dcgpofix.exe - it will 
allow you to recreate the default domain policy and default DC policy

        Hello everyone,


        I am new to this list! My name is Piet (from Holland) but working at a 
small boarding school here in the US. 


        I am having problems entering my default domain policy (I know, it is 
bad practice editing this policy!, I have learned the hard way ) Anyways.... I 
had been editing this policy with no problems and all of sudden I get the 
message that I don't have the right security privileges to enter this gpo 
anymore. So I believe it is corrupt. 


        I need to make changes to it and would like to recreate the default 
policy and then start with the good practice of creating separate gpo's and not 
touching the default gpo anymore. 


        How can I best go by doing this? 


        thanks in advance for any help I can get on this.
