Have you tried running "gpedit.msc" from a command line? That should open straight to the local policy for the system you run the command on.

When a DC is promoted, the Administrative Tools folder console choice named 'Local Security Policy' changes to display 'Domain Controller Security Policy' and 'Domain Security Policy' (Windows Server 2003 - 64 bit DCs). However, these consoles 'only' display the settings for policies that are GPO based in the domain. Other policy settings (like all the ones that are 'local settings') are displayed as 'Not Defined'. The GPMC reports (both Planning and RSoP) for the DC's show similar results. I see similar results when running RSoP.msc. Where do I look to see the "Local Settings" for the DC's? I suppose I could use the Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in, but I can't believe it'd take that amount of effort. Am I really asleep this morning? Am I in the forest and can't see the trees?
