  • how to force workstation shutdown through GROUP (not LOCAL MACHINE) Policy

    hi, and thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Trying to setup a GPO that can force shutdown for any computer objects contained therein. This has value for us as we migrate home directories between servers.

    Try as I might, I've not yet found anything online about this. Would appreciate any help here.

    thanks again,

    This is not really one of the intents of group policy, but I suppose there is a way or two you could do it. I certainly would not guarantee the results and they may be somewhat sporadic.

    I think a better way would simply be to enumerate the list of computer objects in an OU (there are multiple ways to do this), save them to a text file, then copy/paste the results into the Windows 2003 resource kit utility shutdown.exe -i and go from there.
