Ultimately...updating it to Win 10, 1903 stopped the messages from popping up. We were having issues with windows update on it after a while we using the upgrade assistant and manually updating it has done away with the restrictions message. Evidently it was some windows update restriction I assume.

@Trix's answer is a bit wordy and judgemental so I'm going to offer my own TL;DR. Basically, you are not supposed to do this. This is a security protection put in place to avoid unwanted modification of very critical domain files. The correct way to modify the SYSVOL contents is via the c:\windows\system32\sysvol location on a DC that you mentioned in your ...

I reviewed one of my previous environments that followed DISA STIGs. The way that we complied with this requirement was to create a batch file with the required auditpol commands and then dropped that batch file into a GPO startup script under computer configuration.

What did work was to add the shortcut to the All User's Start Menu in the GPO configuration. The shortcut specifically needs this setting on the Common tab of the shortcut setting in the GPO to be turned off (unticked): " Run in logged on user's security context" The start menu item remains after reboot. gpo shortcut general tab gpo shortcut common ...

You can copy the shortcut to C:\Users\Public\Desktop, this is the "All users" desktop. The content of Public\Desktop is "merged" (the view is merged, the file is not copied) with the content of the users' profile. About this: Is it correct to say that the GPO "Specify administratively assigned Offline Files", only works when ...

The challenge is how to keep track of users accepting the policy. Yes. I did such stuff a few times and that's exactly where it may break and where it gets interesting. They suggest a network share with a file per user. Which is impossible pre-logon, beacause no user that should be logged is logged on. I was thinking more of a sqlite DB file to avoid ...

Just to add to this, every article I read suggests that 1 is disabled and 0 is enabled for this EnableMulticast Value, despite the Value name suggesting it is the other way round. I did look at several articles to verify, because with a name like EnableMulticast you would expect it to be the other way round.

Yes, it is possible, using New-GPO command on powershell. On a modern Windows 10 client with rsat tools installed and also adding Module: grouppolicy in powershell. You can execute commands to administer and modify a domain from a client, that's what rsat is for. You don't need to do this tasks from a server. Yet I can't tell if this modern powershell ...

As far as I know, and as described in Microsoft documentation, you need the user to be the owner. I understand your concerns about not giving users more permissions, but with the appropiate permissions in the parent folder, you should not worry: I've a share set it up on 2015 as MS recommends, with more than 7000 users now (more than 100 created this month), ...

Most of the workarounds did not work for me on Windows 10. I was admin and I managed to screw up the group policy by only allowing teams.exe no other program I just went to the c:\windows\system32 folder and made a copy of msdos command line exe cmd.exe and renamed the copy to the program name I was allowing initially (teams.exe). Then ran the below commands ...

You are most likely searching for the chroot equivalent ChrootDirectory in your %programdata%\ssh\sshd_config file. This directive is only supported with sftp sessions, which sounds to me is what you are searchivn for. A remote session (SSH) into the server (cmd.exe oder powershell.exe) would not honor this. To setup a sftp-only chroot server, set ...

Here is a script that you can tune.... It need to be run with the current user, outlook must be closed, and does not work for new teams or skype meetings. *tested on outlook 2016 <# 2=10 minutes 3=15 minutes 4=30 minutes 0=5 minutes 5=60 minutes 1=6 minutes #> $minutes = 3 if (!(Get-Process OUTLOOK -WarningAction SilentlyContinue)) { #Set ...

Audit policies are located in computer configuration -> Policies -> Windows setting -> Security settings -> Local policies -> Audit policies. I hope you find this information useful

Are these new security groups that you created for this purpose? If you're scoping this GPO to an OU that only contains the RDS servers (which would be the simplest thing to do) then don't use Security Filtering as there's no need. The GPO will only apply to the computer accounts in the OU. Set the Security Filtering back to Authenticated Users. If you're ...

You can enable the following policy item: User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer => Prevent changing proxy settings The Settings items will switch to a read-only mode.

Replace the "OR" by "AND" in your query : SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem WHERE (Name != "MSN-LEED01" AND Name != "MSN-LEED02") However, you can just add the computers (or an AD security group containing these computers) in the "Delegation" tab in the Group Policy management, and Deny "Apply Group ...
