Overide a group policy at the local machine
Posted on 2008-11-19
We have a group policy within active directory to enable the screen saver and enforce the locking of the pc with 30 minutes. The policy is under user configuration, admin templates, control panel/display. The screen saver password protect is enabled, screen saver is enabled and the timeout is set to 1800 seconds.
My question is that we have one difficult employee that insists on his comptuer to not lock. I can't seem to find a way so that his local machine will ignore this policy. If create on his local machine group policy the policy in reverse but that does not seem to matter. The policy is by user not machine, I've even create a different OU and put his username into it with the policy disabled with no luck either.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
