I've created a lock down group policy and saved it as an .msc file.  Since we do not run Active Directory, how do I locally import this policy to another PC?   The OS for these pc's are Windows 2000.

Hi,

If you create the file (i guess usint the export or back-up feature of the local policies option) make sure to save it to a dir where all servers can access it. Then go to the Local Security Database of the server you want to import the Group Policy to, right click it and choose import, then the policies will be imported..

Hi,

Make sure to export it to an .inf file, the msc file is useed for a Microsoft Management Console, you can only use the MMC to administer the server..

Hi,

First off all you would need to export it into a .inf file, to do so, go to Start -->  Control Panel -->  Local Security Policy (or something like that). Then right click the policy and choose Export Policy. Make sure to safe it as an .inf file.

For importing, do exactly the same and instead of Export Policy, choose for Import Policy, then the policy should be imported...
