Hi there,

I have a network scenario which used to be solved with Go-Back, which would restore our 40 pc's in our school computer suite perfectly.

We would now like to build a clone and set some group policy lockdown and remove go-back, as its giving us problems. I have gone through and made most changes to the "adminstrative template" that would suit our scenario. When logging on as a test user this works perfectly. However these policys also affect administrators. Is this the way group policy works or is there a way to set the policys just for certain groups e.g 'domain users'.

Sorry no previous experience with group policy what so ever. I have mass reading for this evening but any tips in the mean time would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Cal

If you have a Domain, you should be setting the Policies on your Domain Controller and assigning them to specific OU' or groups.

If you make a local policy change on a computer it affects everyone on the computer, but any Domain Policy you make will override the local policy.

There is a way to make a local policy not apply to the administrator. There is a knowledge base article on Microsofts support site on how to do that. But if you are using a Domain you shouldn't be setting local policies for the most part. Very rarely would you set a local policy.
