This may seem like an odd scenario, but for reasons that I have no control over I need to migrate a large list of user groups from an Active Directory server, to the local group policy of a server that is on the same domain that my AD manages. How can I do this?
I know that there is a MS Active Directory migration tool but I suspect it will not aid me in "downgrading" to a local group policy security policy.
Is there a way that I can re-create and migrate my groups,with their associated domain users, to my Windows Server?
Why am I doing this?
Because it's been asked, I guess I can answer this question. The simple reason is that I currently have rights to setup and modify groups within an Active Directory Server, however, the company that I work for is forcing me to surrender those rights in the near future. I still need to maintain user access to the various databases that I administer on the machine that hosts the databases so I've decided to recreate the active security policies from within the local group policy settings of the server.
