Hello,

I'm building a hotel infrastructure and already have my servers in place. It will be a windows 2003 server enviorment. I was wondering if someone has a template of group policies which we can apply and adjust to our needs. As you know there are too many policies to go through 1 by 1. It will be a domain with all users under.

Any help appreciated.

Hi!

Unfortunately when using Group Policies it's recommended to go through settings one by one, because you have to understand how this settings change your environment. Microsoft has published two security guides which includes security templates for different environments.

I agree with Toniur.
There are not really that many things. Its a good days work to tune up the GPO's. With the GP management tools it is even easier.

Start off with the GPMC - Group Policy Management Console.

Run the Group Policy results wizard against your baseline computer.  It will create a nice HTML results webpage that will show you all the settings that are currently configured.

Next, decide what you want to configure and go from there.
