When a computer that is part of the domain, and does not have a user logged into domain, but rather locally, do the domain policys stay in force?

If so, how do I stop them from doing that?  and do I want to?

    No they dont, You would need to run GPEDIT.MSC from the RUN command in the start menu and set the local policies on that machine for local users.

    Accepted Solution

    The part based on the Computer Branch of the GPO will apply
    The part based on the User Branch of the GPO will not apply

    No you cannot stop it.
    No you do not want to even if you could

    Why a "B"!!!!

    The grade is not based on if the answer was "good news" or "bad news",...the grade is based on the truth of the answer.
