Group Policy Error


M

MikeG

Hello,

I just set up a Terminal Server which 40 out-of-state employees will
connect to. When I try to open 'Domain Security Policy' I get an error
that says: "Failed to open the group policy object. You may not have
appropriate rights. Details: The network name cannot be found." The
network has 2 DC's in it (was also receiving the error when there was
only one).

Here is my netdiag.log:

Do you have two DNS servers? It looks like one of the DNS servers is down.
Which DNS server does the Terminal Server point to? If you fix the issue
with the DNS server, this may fix the problem of not being able to determine
the network name.

From your netdiag.log file as given below. Even though DNS test passed it's
saying the DC can't be verified on DNS server 192.168.0.7.

DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Passed
PASS - All the DNS entries for DC are registered on DNS server
'192.168.0.100' and other DCs also have some of the names registered.
[WARNING] The DNS entries for this DC cannot be verified right
now on DNS server 192.168.0.7, ERROR_TIMEOUT.
