Error you get on SBS 2008 when trying to make a new GPO

While working with SBS 2008, I encountered this error while trying to create a new GPO:

“The data present in the reparse buffer point is invalid”

And then it just drops you back to the GPO editor, not letting you create the new GPO. after doing some research, I found this issue is being caused by the File Server Resource Manager, under Server roles.

Tip, uninstall this item and then make the GPO. The downside is if you uninstall it, you have to reboot. This seems to be a bug in SBS 2008, and I assume will be corrected shortly.
