User permissions within a Group Policy Console

Hi,

I have a Windows Server 2000 without AD. I need to implement some user restrictions. I would like to use the MMC Group Policy Console. Can you specify a rule for a user/group or is the rule going to apply to all users including the admins.

Thanks in advance.

Without a domain, the policies will apply to every account. If you want to exclude administrators, have a look here:

Sorry, didn't mention, the Server is in a Domain. The DC is running in NT4 hence no AD.

You can either use the above article as well, or you can use the NT4 system policies:

Thanks for your reply oBdA. I have read that document before but didn't use it as it states at the bottom of the doc that it "APPLIES TO • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Edition".
I need to imolement policies on a Windows 2000 Server. Do you think it would be ok on W2k Server?

That works as well for W2k Server, yes.
