    GPMC Settings Problem

    Hi People,
    Basically when we try to view the settings tab in the Group Policy Management Console for some policies it fails to generate a report. This is the error we get:

    Code:
    An error occurred while generating report:
    An unknown error occurred while the HTML report was being created.
    Does this mean part of this policy may be corrupt? We can still edit it but it takes quite a while to load which makes me think GPMC is struggling to read some settings.

    How can I check if it is corrupt?
    If it is corrupt how can I fix it?

    Any help appreciated.
    Darren

    id be tempted to copy all the policy settings for the affected policies into new policies (and call them v2 or something) then move over to them as i think ive had similar messages before and last time i saw that the files were odd and i ended up rewriting them (luckily i could get enough info on them to do it so just sat at 2 pcs side by side and copied settings accross)

    it is worth checking permissions on them though
