Re-enable File & Print Sharing on all domain computers

When we first set up our network, we unchecked file & print sharing on every computer.  It was very helpful in securing our computers - however, we have run into several snags where we need it.  (primarily for managing computers (pulling event logs) & our managed Symantec cannot manage the computers without it).  I know that we can manually walk around to all 250 computers, but, that sucks.  Is there any way to use a GPO to turn it back on with every computer in a certain OU?  (we don't want it turned on for our field laptops that don't connect but every few weeks).

Thanks!

Looks like you can't do with a GPO; you'd need a script and a GPO to apply the script.
