Access Denied to policy editor

By aseem_kumar_2001 ·
I have windows 2003 ENT. server installed with AD running on.
When i try to open "Domain Controller Security policy" link, or "Domain Security policy" link from administrative tools or even from system32 folder, i get the error --"Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have apporpriate rights." And in under details : "The network path was not found"

Here is the screenshot of the error

I even tried a step stated on microsoft's website

But no resolution.

What should be done ?

Is the issue on the one domain controller?

Can you see and open to policy from the PDC Emulator?

Are you attempting to open the policy as a domain administrator of the domain in which the policy is located?

Have you renamed your dc or your domain ?

I have had this exact problem after i renamed my domain.

This is how I fixed it.
find the shortcut "Domain Security Policy" shortcut in the administrative tools and right click to get properties >

now make sure your shortcut is linking you to the correct domain. This is my example.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\dompol.msc /gpobject:"LDAP://CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB454F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=domain,DC=org"
