  • my window 2000 server GPO is not available

    error message is the domain controller for group policy operations is not available. you may cancel this operation for this session or retry using one of the following domain controller choices:
    • the one with operation master token for the PDC emulator
    • the one used by the active directory snap - ins
    • use any available domain controller


    any choice above i choosed got an error message, failed to find a domain controller, there may be a policy that prevents you from selecting another domain controller.

    details: no more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can accept.

    i have enabled netbeui protocol and file and printer sharing for microsoft network.

    still the gpo is missing but sometimes its available too and then its gone again. anybody share the same experience? help? how to solve this problem....

    More info please I can see you have checked MS KB 257435.

    How are you connecting TS or admin tools via MCC
    Do you only have the one DC or are there others?
    2000 or 2003?
    Any events on the Server or the machine your connecting from?

    Can you see GPO's when accessing directly on the server itself or is that intermittant also?

    Has anything changed on your DNS recently?
