    Trying to open the GPO through MMC and I get the following error message.

    Group Policy Error

    Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights.

    Details

    The network path not found

    Even though I have logged in as Administrator and with admin privileges.

  2. Hi John

    With the error you're seeing, take a look at

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MSCFile\Shell\Open\Command

    The "Default" value should be of type REG_EXPAND_SZ and the data should read

    %SystemRoot%\system32\mmc.exe "%1" %*

    Kind regards

    Mark,

    I had taken a look at it and found that the data reads the same what you
    had mentioned below. So, does this mean that there is something wrong or this
    is the way it should be?

    Also, I read the article ID 318170 which talks about "Damaged Phantom Object
    prevents Infrastructure Phantom Cleanup Task from Running". And, I checked
    all my registry settings and found that it is all the same and nothing has
    changed.

    I have several 1058 and 1030 events in my event viewer. Also, 1006 and 1079
    events earlier.

    This problem must have started occurring after I renamed the domain name
    from .local to .com. And, when I check the Group Policy under "Domain
    Controller Properties" I had my previous GPO .local which had a red link on
    it. I added Default Domain Controllers Policy and infact deleted that .local.
    But, this was done only yesterday.

    But, these events what I am seeing 1058 and 1030 has been going on from the
    time I renamed the domain from .local to .com. So, what could be wrong or
    what else can be done to fix this issue. As, I am unable to open the GPO at
    all.

  4. Hi John

    If the registry reads the same as what I posted last time, then it's
    correct. Make sure the registry value has the correct type also.

    The 1058 and 1030 events may be a known issue:

    842804 Group Policy processing does not work and events 1030 and 1058 are
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=842804

    If this is of no assistance, you might be in for a great deal of
    troubleshooting. I've seen a few instances of these symptoms and there's a
    whole range of things that might be related.

    If you search google groups with the following search terms, you'll find an
    earlier post by me that talks about a number of things to check ...

    "mark renoden" 1030 1058

    I don't think this list is comprehensive but it's most of it.

    If none of this helps, I'd suggest logging a support incident as a solution
    will probably be non-trivial.

    Kind regards
