Hi Nathan,

 

I don't believe there is a way in Group Policy to turn off Local Policy. If
there was, you could get interesting behavior if you used Local Group Policy
to disable Local Group Policy processing..

 

However one way that you could achieve the desired result is to have a
script that runs that removes all of the settings. It is all held under
C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy, so if your script was to replace that
structure with a "clean" structure it should have the desired effect. 

 

If there was only a few machines, you should be able to just do it as a once
off.

Subject: [gptalk] Ignoring local group policy

 

Hi,

 

We have some PC's running XP that have some local policy settings
enabled/configured.

 

Is it possible using GP, to setup a computer to ignore local policy and only
apply GP?

 

Thanks

 

Nathan
