  • Reseting Default Domain Policy

    Does anyone know how to reset the Default Domain Policy to it's initial state? I have a 2003 functional domain. A previous administrator has made multiple changes to the Default Domain Policy and I want to set it back to the original configuratino without having to go in a manually edit each item that has been changed.

      Hi,

      The tool to do this is DCGPOFIX.EXE which resets both the default Domain policy and the here is the link for more info on that: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc772811.aspx

      Before you do that though I'd recommend Backing up the default GPO used at the moment and then restore it as a new GPO so you won't loose any of the settings.

          That's exactly what I wanted to do. I will let you guys know how it comes out. Does this program allow the backup as well? Or can one of you guys lead me to a website for the directions.

            You can backup your gpo's quite easily with the GPMC.
            DCGPOfix is a commandline tool which just fix the default domain policy and or default domain controller policy.

            You might re-read my first url.
