Strange. I had originally tried this on a local GPO and it worked just fine
but now testing this against my domain environment, my GPOs are greyed-out
as well. So, here's an alternative. The actual .inf file that is stored in
SYSVOL for that GPO is just the same format that secedit uses. So, for a
given GPO, simply go into the
\\<domain>\sysvol\<domain>\policies\<GPOGUID>\Machine\Microsoft\Windows
NT\SecEdit folder and copy the gpttmpl.inf to wherever you need it.

Yes there are.  I have tried it in multiple domains now and the results are
the same across the board.

Are there actually security settings defined within the GPOs?

Logged in as domain admin and the setting is greyed out.  I have verified
the security on the gp and all is set to the default.  I have even tried
this on the PDC emulator.

 

Same on all group policies in the domain.  Ideas or something I am missing?

Sure! Right-click Security Settings node within GPEditor and choose Export
Policy. That exports the current settings in the GPO to a .inf file that can
be consumed by Secedit.

I have been searching high and low and need a little help.  Is there a way
to export an existing group policy to a security template so it can be used
with security configuration and analysis?

 

Thanks

Dan
