  • Exporting Local Policies

    I'm searching for a way, to export local policies, and import them later.
    I want to export Computer and user policies.

    I cannot set those policies on AD, cause this will be a workgroup (no server or whatever)

    OS windows 2000 Pro.
    i was thinking about Secedit /export ...... but does he export everything, and how can i import it then?

    Thnx in advantage.

    You can import them using

    secedit /import

    For more info using secedit type secedit /? this will bring up the help file.

    I know you will probably already know this so please don't take offence as none is meant.

      i was aware of that

      well my question is also as followed:
      Does the export option also exports the Computer configuration as the user configuration??

      as far as i can see he only exports the security settings...

        Thought you would have

        Yeah as far as i can see you can only export the security policies.

        From memory you can only create new security templates that deal with the security aspect. Uses the infs in security.

          damn...

          isn't there any way to export those security settings?

          Currently i just found:
          http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro...244560587.mspx

          but for example: i want to disable all the printer settings.

          The use of this that i'm currently busy to create an unattended install for a internetcafé... (sort of). Because those machines will be internet only, everything most me disabled/blocked.

            Re: Exporting Local Policies

            For an internet cafe of sorts i would put all the machines on a domain, regardless of how small.

            This way you can control everything from a central point.

            It's all down to costs though.

            I'll keep trawling the net for more info.

                Re: Exporting Local Policies

                The Policy settings. Aren't they stored in the registry?
                so if i make a change, export the registry and then import it (after an clean install). Should that work???

                i wonder...

                  Re: Exporting Local Policies

                  Or use something like winstall LE to record any changes to the registry and create a package?

                      Ok,

                      creating a package also didn't work.

                        Re: Exporting Local Policies

                        Why not create a ghost image of the PC's using sysprep and set to ask for a comp name when rebuilding??

                        Or even some sort of disk imaging software.

                            Why not using images?
                            Well thats an alternative, but they haven't any license for Ghost (or some other diskcloning utility)
                            Also, the customer rather not buying any license for Ghost...
