I need to exclude a PC from receiving a setting from the default domain policy

There is a setting in the default domain policy that sets the screen saver lock at 10 minutes however, I have one1 PC that needs to be set at 30 minutes. How would I set it up that this one PC gets a different policy setting than the rest?

Thanks

What version of Windows Server are you running?

You could deny access to the 10 minute policy on delegation. A deny will ensure that that PC will not receive the policy just be sure to set the object type to computer.   It needs READ to be able to apply the policy.


Another policy for 30 minutes can be set to allow if you need ... just alternate as you require

There are probably a dozen ways to do this. How I would go about it is to remove these settings from the default domain policy.

Then create 2 new GPOs, one with the 10 minute setting, one with the 30 minute setting.

Put the 1 PC into a separate OU and apply each of the new policies to the appropriate OU.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It is a windows 2003 domain. Unfortunately the admin before me put everything into the default domain policy. There are several dozen policy settings that I would need to move to a new GPO before I can make the 2nd one.

Thanks everyone for the help. I removed the screensaver setting from the default policy and created 2 separate ones and applied them accordingly.
