I created many of the GPOs that are in the domain currently but recently I am getting: This security ID may not be assigned as the owner of this object. When trying to add a new policy. Tried the GUI and also from the powershell cmd new-gpo – hoping that perhaps I would get more diagnostic information from the powershell — but same message either way. From several sites I have read this error indicates the user doesn’t have the correct permissions for SOMETHING — but cannot figure out where it is missing. Tried resetting permissions to default via https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816750(v=ws.10).aspx C:Windowssystem32>icacls c:WindowsSYSVOL c:WindowsSYSVOL NT AUTHORITYAuthenticated Users: (RX) NT AUTHORITYAuthenticated Users: (OI)(CI)(IO)(GR,GE) BUILTINServer Operators: (RX) BUILTINServer Operators: (OI)(CI)(IO)(GR,GE) BUILTINAdministrators: (F) BUILTINAdministrators: (OI)(CI)(IO)(F) NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM: (F) NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM: (OI)(CI)(IO)(F) BUILTINAdministrators: (F) CREATOR OWNER: (OI)(CI)(IO)(F) Anyone have know what I am doing wrong? Where can I look? Really appreciate insights. Beth Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
