Running SBS 2011 with a single DC and I am having issues modifying certain GPO settings.
I was going to simply increase the maximum password age to 60 days, and after making the change to the GPO and trying to save, I receive an error:
From the screen shot above, one can see that the file does indeed exist.
To test further I created a new test GPO and tried to enable the same setting and I got the same error.
I can set GPO **Preference** settings OK, such as "Create new folder c:junk", but not the password policy settings (which are domain related), and as the error window shows, something to do with "Security Templates"
As part of log checks I noticed that the File Replication Service was logging a journal wrap error so I fixed this but still the GPO setting, "max password age" can't be set.
I've spent half a day on this and not getting anywhere. Has anyone got any tips on how best to solve this issue? Much appreciated.
