Applying security locally, no AD, no servers...
Posted on 2003-03-25
I'm completely lost with all these security issues in Win2K.
Well, the problem is: I have a standalone Win2K Professional workstation, no servers, no AD, no DNS.
I need just apply more restriction to certain user or group (Users). Locally.
I've read all that Microsoft HOWTOs, but still frustrating: I don't understand the key trick - how to apply those settings I play with in Group Policy or Security snap-ins to the certain user or group???
What I have now is the settings (either Computer Configuration or User Configuration once have been changed) affect all users even from different groups. Seems oddly. How to isolate it? I need a normal admin and a tightly restricted user...
I suspect maybe I have to apply the Security Template or policy during logon, in the script using secedit? I don't quite understand the role of database here too.....
But in WinNT that was working somehow without logon script.
Or where to get a simple step-by-step instruction how to succeed with this trivial task?
Exhausted and disappointed.
Need your guide.
