I need to find the best way to either copy the Computer configurations-->Windows Settings-->Local Policies-->User rights assignments in group policy or edit the registry.  This is in a domain done at the workstation level.  I copied the User registry.pol file for user settings, but the computer cofigurations will not copy over.  I have tried to copy the entire adm folder and the machine folder.  The failure to see changes may be due to a domain policy restriction.  If it is not possible to copy the group policy, I need to be able to edit the registry for the following group policy settings:  

Computer configurations-->Windows Settings-->Security Settings-->Local Policy-->User rights assignments
--Prevent local users from lgon locally
            --Only allow


--Force shutdown from remote system
           --only allow
--Shut down the system
           --only allow

Does anyone have any insight?
