  • the forest cannot be loaded opening gpmc

    Hi,
    I have a windows 2003 domain with 6 dcs and 2 exchange servers.
    My problem is when I open GPMC on my root machine I get the error: The forest could not be loaded and will be removed. The doc file has been corrupted.

    GPMC opens and I can add the forest but I cant save it for the same reason.
    I can open GPMC and there is no problem on another DC.

    Does anyone know how I can repair the "doc file" on the problem machine and whether the problem here will replicate to my other DCs?
    I have already tried to replace secedit.sdb but get access denied.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try Uninstalling and Reinstalling GPMC in Safe Mode...

      Thanks for your help, yanivfel.

      I havent been able to take the machine offline yet but I will let you know how I go.
      At this stage I have put another DC on the site and was able to edit the GPO from that one. I am starting to think that I have some OS corruption on my other machine. It is the root of my Forest which does not thrill me too much.
      Best Regards
