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.

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.
