Just found the following ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE Powershell script: http://mctexpert.blogspot.co.il/2012/11/backup-event-logs-on-multiple-servers.html It does everything I wanted and then some.

Another possibility (without GPO) is using surun with a rule as in this screenshot.

Since it's a service that you're able to stop, then have the script disable the service, stop it, copy what you need, re-enable it, and then start it. In order to disable the service, you'll need to play with the registry. Here, there be dragons. The following contains potentially hazardous information. Proceed at your own risk. Export the following ...

If you are using legacy password policies, those apply to the entire domain. You may want to research fine-grained password policies.

It is an issue with MS16-072.

Yes, it was DNS problem indeed. Workstations can use DNS to discover where the domain controller is. They use DNS queries like _ldap._tcp.my_domain.com and others. VPN connection created point-to-point link between router and the domain controller and the peer ip of the domain controller (192.168.1.50) have become available to the router network. Router ...

It works the same way as you add ACL into file/folder permission. In typical scenarios where no "deny" entry is involved, and you add multiple groups "allow", or "apply" permissions, any of the group gets the GPO. edit//: However, adding computers into your filtering won't help you at all because what you have is a user setting GPO. Computer account is ...

You can filter computers in specific OU by using WMI filters.

It isn't possible to override group policy in the general case, but for the Windows Firewall there is an option that will let you do that. Under the profile (domain / private / public) settings under rule merging there is an option "apply local firewall rules". It won't let you modify the deployed rules but it does let any local changes that need to be ...

The minimum password age only affect the users ability to "change" their own password. It does not affect admins or account operators from being able to "reset" someone else's password. The "must change at next logon" does an override on the minimum password value, because after an admin does a reset, you want the user to choose a new password. Is your ...

I'm not aware of a switch in robocopy to do that, but you can test for the file, and invoke robocopy with different options to accomplish that result: if not exist x:\user1\file1.txt Robocopy "C:\logon" "X:\user1" /mir /r:1 w:1 if exist x:\user1\file1.txt Robocopy "C:\logon" "X:\user1" /mir /r:1 w:1 /xf file1.txt

It sounds like you were playing with Restricted Groups. If so, the group isn't restricted any more, but everyone who was in that group has been kicked out. You need to create a new GPO and apply it. Then you can log in. After you're safely logged in, you can un-apply it and make sure the group membership is what you want it to be.

The local group guest is done for that. Any member of that group on the server/computer will got a temporary profile even if a local profile is already on the machine. Thus that setting ignore local profile and give everyone a new temporary profile

Take a look at this TechNet article for how to use Group Policy to create a shortcut item You can use the path %SystemRoot%\System32\cleanmgr.exe as the shortcut target.

You can use the Set roaming profile path for all users logging onto this computer policy value in computer configuration on a GPO targeting only that one PC. If you set the path to something invalid, any user will always be logged on with a temporary profile.

I haven't looked into this before, but I've never come across a native setting in the answer file for local group policy options. That being said, Group Policy settings are just registry entries, which you absolutely CAN set via answer file. You can examine the local templates in the %SystemRoot%\PolicyDefinitions folder with a text editor to determine ...

In Windows 10, (as well as Windows 8, I believe), you can open File Explorer, select Network from the left navigation pane, select the Network Tab that appears in the ribbon at the top of the window, then choose the Search Active Directory option. A user should then be able to search for an AD group that it has permissions to update and add/remove members.

The most effective way to validate the effective policy is to run gpresult /h gpresult.html or use the Group Policy Modeling Wizard. Also, you can't logon with a user account in your local domain to a computer in a remote domain without some kind of trust.

You could use group policy preferences to copy files down . There's a tutorial of that on the internet at http://kunaludapi.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/copy-files-on-all-computers-using-group.html I've used this to copy down some files in the past - only thing I think you would find is that you would need to use a new OS to setup the policy e.g. GPMC on windows ...

The local Administrators group will by default have logon access via remote desktop services. As the Domain Admins group is added to the local Administrators group by default when a computer is joined to the domain, members of Domain Admins have these access rights by default. You can use Restricted Groups policies to enforce the addition of the Domain ...

It only creates an event log entry if something would be blocked. You created a rule that allows everything, which defeats the purpose of even using AppLocker, unless you are going to use it for blacklisting.

you wont be able to restore the previously backed up GPO. What you need to do is create an new empty GPO and then right click it and choose to Import settings. then point at the backup GPO on the local file system. GPOs have a close relationship to the domain in which they were created so for example if you had a dev forest and a production forest and wanted ...

Ok, this caught me completely off guard. While a Samba Active Directory domain can be usually fully configured without any issues using RSAT, it seems that the password policy is one of these very few things where this doesn't work, or at least not in its entirety. The solution is to turn off complexity directly on the Samba server, using # samba-tool ...

Along with the suggestion to use Organizational Units to target your Group Policy objects, you can also use Security Filtering in the applicable GPO's to have them apply to only specific computers and/or users. You'd simply remove Authenticated Users from the Security Filtering of the GPO and add the relevant computer or user accounts, or more preferably, ...

I am not sure you are looking at this from the right angle. AFAIK each desktop pulls the filter from the directory and then checks if the GPO should be applied or not. It's not that the server actively allocates GPOs only to a limited number of desktops. So, doesn't sound like a Samba issue. And that you cannot use WMI to query a Linux machine should be ...

Ignoring FGPP, there can be only one domain Password Policy. This is by default defined in the Default Domain Policy GPO. If you want to use a different Password Policy GPO then you need to link it to the domain and give it a higher precedence than the Default Domain Policy GPO. I suspect that's where your problem lies. https://blogs.manageengine.com/active-...

Group Policy runs within the Winlogon.exe process, which runs under the LocalSystem security context, so this is not about what user is logging on to the computer, this is about the computer. The only suggestion I have would be to unjoin and rejoin this computer to the domain to see if that corrects it.

First, it's not necessary to "create" an event source. When you log to the event log (even as rudimentary as eventcreate.exe), you can pick specify any event source you'd like, and it will work (and show up as that source). Of course registering an event source, along with a message DLL, is preferable since it ensures that the event will be properly ...

Not this specific problem but I had read that there could be issues that arise from AD forests that were upgraded from 2003 to 2008. That was the case for mine. The solution I followed was to migrate the SYSVOL sharing responsibility from File Replication Services(FRS) to DFSR. In order for this to work your domain functional level needs to be at least 2008 ...
