I'm not familiar with the NIST GPOs and what form they come in--from
Jamie's
response is sounds like they are GPMC backups. If that is the case then
you
can't import them locally and especially not as a regular user so
Jamie's
suggestion of using AD to segregate them sounds best.

Just put the systems in a different OU or use security filtering to
limit those GPO settings to computers you have identified for testing.

Thanks. I am looking at ways for a non-admin user to be able to locally
import these settings on his machine... We want to have them test the
settings, but locally on their machines.

Thanks,
Jean

Replacing the .adm file(s) won't do anything. Extract the GPO .zip file
to your harddrive. Then In GPMC, create a new GPO, right-click and
select "Import Settings". Then point to the GPO source files you
extracted and you should be good. Each GUID is a separate GPO so you may
have to do this a couple times to import them all.

Subject: [gptalk] Question importing GPO Settings

As you probably aware of, the OMB has mandated that all federal agencies
use the Federal Desktop Common Configuration settings. NIST has released
some GPO settings to meet these requirements, I was looking for a way to
import these settings without having to change them without going to
each and everyone of them through the GPMC. Any advice on how to easily
accomplish that? Would replacing the ADM file under windows\inf folder
with the one NIST provided do the trick?

Thanks,
Jean
