RE: Windows cannot open template file

Dear Ash,

This is the default behaviour of a new GPO. Until you have made a policy
setting this message will be displayed when selecting the Security
Settings. To resolve
this you need to select a policy to set. Once a setting has been made and
the policy reopened you can select the Security Settings and view the
expected information.

Thanks Tom for your posting so that we can continue the
discussion until we find a solution.

I have applied the policy to the domain as well as some
of the OUs. The GPO I am talking about is the policy at
the domain level. I don't find the "Windows cannot open
template file" in the other GPOs which have been applied
to other OUs at downlevel. This only happens with the
default domain policy GPO at the domain level.

Also, please note that I have selected some of the policy
settings in both computer and user configuration of the
Default Domain Policy GPO.

The above settings were in place before I started this
posting. Recently I have applied SP4, however without any
solution.

I would appreciat any further posting in this regard.

Dear Ash,

I suggest you rename the GptTmpl.inf file in the appropriate
SYSVOL\domain\policies\GUID\Machine\Microsoft\WindowsNT\SecEdit folder to
see if the problem can be resolved.

It Works! Thanks a lot.

That's why we love Microsoft. I have been chasing an
issue with Computer Associates for a while now, yet
without any solution.

Good on you Tom!
