    Question Server 2008 GPMC error

    Hello
    I am having a problem with GPMC. This started about a week ago.
    When I click on my GPMC I get this error.

    I have google'd and checked all the settings (DNS, AD settings)

    Thoughts... suggestions.....

    Thanks!

    Most likely it's going to be DNS related. Are the servers replicating OK through Active Directory Sites and Services?

    Replication is running to all servers fine. I am able to open GPMC on other DC's with no issues.

    If you run dcdiag, does it show any problems?

    Event String:
    The Kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the se
    rver host/chief.#####.###. The target name used was ldap/CHIEF.#####.###/#####.###@#####.###. This indicates that the target server failed to decrypt the ticket provide
    d by the client. This can occur when the target server principal name (SPN) is r
    egistered on an account other than the account the target service is using. Plea
    se ensure that the target SPN is registered on, and only registered on, the acco
    unt used by the server. This error can also happen when the target service is us
    ing a different password for the target service account than what the Kerberos K
    ey Distribution Center (KDC) has for the target service account. Please ensure t
    hat the service on the server and the KDC are both updated to use the current pa
    ssword. If the server name is not fully qualified, and the target domain (#####.###) is different from the client domain (#####.###), check if there are identically
    named server accounts in these two domains, or use the fully-qualified name to
    identify the server.

    I'm speculating this isn't your primary DC (your FSMO role holder), so I would run dcpromo, demote the server as a DC, then run dcpromo again to re-promote.
