  • Server 2008 R2 Local Security Policy on Grey

    Hi all,

    This is my first windows Server 2008 and my first problem is that I cannot change the account Policies en Local Security Policy because it's on Grey.... How I can enable that?

    Thanks!

    Is it a domain member?
    Is it a DC (no local policies)?

        Then edit the default domain policy using GPMC

          To clarify
          DCs are above anything "local" so no local users, policies etc. As Marcel said, you will need to edit a domain policy to make the changes - it doesnt need to be the default one but should be linked to the domain

            Usually creating less GPO's is more performance (less to load ). Some things I'm in favor of consolidating.
            Since there can be only one GPO for password policies and it should be linked to te domain (instead of OU's) I usually use the default domain policy
