Remove File & Printer Sharing (XP and 7) via Group Policy
Posted on 2010-09-08
I have 60 machines in an AD OU, and would like to via group policy, have file and printer sharing removed or disabled from the properties of the Local Area Connection on all of them (XP 32 bit and 7 x64 bit).
Can this be accomplished via a Group Policy setting (where is it?) or do I need to push a script out to the machines to get this done (keep in mind that not all of the ethernet cards are locally called "Local Area Connection" on all of the machines).
Will need a script/policy for Windows XP (more important) but would be nice also to know what setting needs to be modified to do this with Windows 7.
