Failed to open Group Policy Object

Failed to open Group Policy Object

Sounds like there is something wrong in the Distinguished Name (DN) parameter. An example would look like this:
CN=Server,CN=System,DC=domainname,DC=com

YOu might need to open Active Directory User & Computers and check out your domain controllers. Make sure they seem right or not (maybe the machine name of one is mis-spelled in AD).

If not, try the Resource Kit tools DcDiag.exe and.or NetDiag.exe

hope this helps
