JSI Tip 0384 - Can I have a local Policy for my Workstation?

Normally, Windows NT Policies are used when a user logs on to a Domain.

You can set up Policies for the local account database.

Create a Netlogon share for %SystemRoot%\System32\Repl\Import\Scripts with Read permissions for Everyone and Full Control for the Administrators group.

Use Poledit.exe and create your policy.

Double-click Local Computer, double-click Network, double-click System Policies Update, and then select Remote Update.

Click Automatic in the Update Mode box, and then click OK.

Save the policy to the Netlogon share as Ntconfig.pol.

NOTE: This will allow you to use both a local and a domain-wide system policy, depending on which user account database the user logs on to.
