The problem is not management tools, the problem is what it was saying to you
- the permissions on the domain's SYSVOL dhare are wrong.
Probably they are too open and anyone could write to it, so anything located
there can't be trusted.
Please follow the advice and check the permissions. Reset them if needed.

With best regards,
