Reset Screen Saver Group Policy - Server 2008
Posted on 2009-05-04
I have a small network on which various Group Policies are enforced to provide for specific security and functionality settings. One of these settings is that the screen saver should be enabled, and lock the workstation after 30 minutes. This works beautifully on all of our machines, and causes the options in the Screen Saver tab of the Display Settings to be greyed out. I have one machine that I would like to have allowed to change the screen saver options in this tab. I've placed it in its own OU and block policy inheritance, linking only the policies that don't enforce the screen saver settings.
Despite there no longer being an enforced policy regarding screen saver settings for this machine, the settings in the Screen Saver tab remain greyed out. Is there a way to reset the Group Policy settings on this particular Server 2008 machine, or at least re-enable the Screen Saver configuration options? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
