I have a Windows 2003 Server that has been affected by restrictions applied by the GPOs and even with administrative priviledges i can't use many administrative tasks like Windows Update,all the Administrative snap-ins.
The server had installed previously the Novell Client. Since the Netware server is not anymore online i can't login with
the administrative account to unlock the policy
Any ideea on how to reset the group policy on this machine ?

Hello,
If you still have the netware client installed and you cannot login, you can click the 'workstation only'
check box and that will let you login to your Active Directory.

If that doesn't help then you can create an OU w/ the desired policies and move the server into that ou from a workstation that has AD Users and Computers installedor move the server to an existing OU.

Once it is moved you can wait until the policies take effect or you can reboot the server remotley
shutdown -r -m \\YourServerNameHERE -t 01

I agree, just move the server into a different OU, create a new GPO and link it to the new OU and block policy inheritance.  Wait for it to push down to the server and you should be able to do whatever you need to.

The server is running in a workgroup environment not AD so i coudn't apply any GPO
I was able to modify in the registry and enable the access on the Local Computer Policy.
I have disabled the both computer/user policy and i was able setup the policy settings manually back to default.
Restarted the server was back to normal
Thank you guys for all the infos !
