    no default domain gpo

    HI. i have just taken charge of a small windows 2000 server, 2000 workstation network.Tried to set up a few domain Gpo's then discovered that the default doin gpo was in the recylce bin! recovered it. but now get error message when i try to edit it " cannot access gpt.ini"

    Further complication...the old gpo took away the "run" option from the start menu. How can i get to command line?

    Re: no default domain gpo

    There are a number of files associated with a gpo and you need to recover them all.

    Are there any backups you can recover it from?

    The other thing I've done once was to install 2000 server on a machine or virtual machine and make it a domain controller then copy it's default domain policy onto a usb stick and trasnfer it over.

    If you need to recreate the default GPOs, you might want to take a look at recreatedefpol.exe and DCGPOFix.exe for 2000 and 2003 respectively.
