Cannot Apply Group Policies - Access is Denied

By naman.jandial ·

I have setup win server 2003 Enterprise & have also installed AD and DNS on the server,
so the server is up and running and the 2 win xp client machines are successfully
conected to the server.

I have created several OUs and several users in each OU.

Logged on as the Administrator on the Domain Controller, I decided to apply some
group policies on each of the OU, but when ever I click on new to create a new GPO
it reads "Access is denied - You do not have sufficient Permissions to perform this

I am confused why it is not letting me to do that.

Still I went ahead & created a new user and assigned that user all the administrative
rights (including Group Policy Object Creator Owner).

I then Tried applying some policies by logging on with that user and still no luck.

I then Installed the Adminpak on Win xp computer & logged on as the domain controller
& tried to apply some policies there but still the same error.

I am goofed up now, please help me.

Thanks in advance.

Remember, if changing the rights of a user. Logout and log back in again to refresh the rights (remember Windows uses tickets when authorizing access to resources, so it may be out of date when you change rights).
