Disabling GPO for specific server.

I did a couple of Window Updates, one of them being an update to SQL,  to a server last Thursday and now when I try opening the program on that server, I get a couple of Automation errors. When I talked to support from the program's company, they don't think it has anything to do with the updates but something with Group Policy. I restored our backup from Wednesday night, done before the updates were applied, and still get the error so I know it's not the updates. We haven't made any changes to GP lately but I was wondering if I could exclude this server from getting the GPO to see if that's what is causing it. The server is Server 2008 SP2.

Sure. On the GPO - click delegation - advanced - Add - add your server name. Check the deny box that is next to Apply Group Policy. In most cases, you can simply run a gpupdate to remove that GPOs setting form the machine.

Thanks. Is there an easy way to see what each machine is pulling in for GPO?

On the machine, run gpresult /h report.htm /f

Then open that report.htm file.

OK, it looks like it generated the report but where do I open it at?

just type report.htm in the command window. The report is saved in the operating directory that the command window points to (normally C:\Users\USERNAME\).

Great, thanks. It appears that all of our GPOs from the domain controller are Access Denied (Security Filtering), which I'm assuming is a good sign. The program still isn't working but at least I can show their support that no GPOs are being applied.

Access Denied would show that the GPOs weren't being applied (which is good in this case). Be sure to remove that deny setting or future you will curse current you. :)
