cannot save settings in gpedit.msc

May 31, 2010 at 19:03:41
Specs: Windows

I have a server which is part of a domain. When I tried to change its local settings using gpedit.msc, the settings do not get saved and get reverted to Not Configured.

I checked the domain policies/higher level policies and those settings were not set, so there is no override problems here and I am logged in as an administrator

Can someone advise on this? Tried googling but does not get much answers

You should always do you Policies in the Active Directory GPOs.

I found something weird too... it seems that this problem might be for only some policy settings

If I tried to edit some other settings (say "allow undock without having to log on" in Security Options), the setting get saved
