Edit an Group Policy object

If you receive this warning in Group Policy Management, when you are trying to edit an Group policy object:

Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights.

Details:
The system cannot find the path specified.

This warning can happen, when one of the following folders are missing:
  • %SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\DomainName
  • %SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\DomainName\Policies
  • %SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\DomainName\Policies\{GUID}
  • %SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\DomainName\Policies\{GUID}\Machine
  • %SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\DomainName\Policies\{GUID}\User

In my case, I was missing the Machine folder. I just created that folder, and then i could edit the object again.
