Hi,

Server - 2003

PCs - 20 or so Windows XP

I have a requirement to set the lockout policy on a group of domain PCs. I want to be able to exclude some from locking out as they need to be on all the time.

How best to go about doing this?

Create an OU, move these clients inside the OU, create a GPO with the needed settings.
Do you mean you don't want the screensaver to lock the computer?

Yes I wanted 1-2 PCs not to lock.

Are you talking about the screen saver locking? Then it's not a computer policy but a per user setting. You could however solve it using loopback policy.

No it's actually locking out the PC after a period of inactivity.

Anyway...you are talking about locking the screen, not "locking out" a computer account/user account, right? If so, then my suggestion applies.
