Hi,

Doesn't work for me "Connections are currently ENABLED by Group Policy for this machine, unable to ch

Please advise howto find a workaround.
Found this: "To fix the issue, you need to unset (not 'disable') this on the GPO. After a policy refresh you should get back the ability to control logon availability."

Just scared that users won't be able to logon after that?
