A script that Changes Local policy settings
I need to disjoin some computers from the Domain,
I did disjoin some, but noticed by default after they are disjoined I can not browse to them using \\Ipaddress\C$.
The issue was when they get disjoined from the domain to workgroup, the Settings in Local policy "Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts" switches to "Guest only: Local users authenticate as Guest."

is there any script to run agains workstations that can reset this policy to "Classic: Local users authenticate as themselves." ???

Because when It's set to "Classic: Local users authenticate as themselves.", I can browse to the computer I can do other things too, lie rejoining it to the domain through a script from a remote machine.

Thanks

lhow am I gonna run it against remote computers.
If I use PSEXEC tool , I am not sure it's gonna work since the taget computer will need credentials
and if the policy is "Guest only: Local users authenticate as Guest." on the remote computer then it will not accept the credentials that I sued to run PSEXEC.
