Solved Export of GPO files to create script

May 20, 2011 at 06:56:54
Specs: Windows XP
I just started a new desktop engineering job and have been tasked with some assignments that are tough for someone who doesn't know GPO's very well. My boss has given me some assignments to raise my knowledge of GPO's while I await an admin account.

My boss has requested that I detail the steps to create Security GPOs to perform certain tasks on an XP machine which is fine. That information is readily available. In fact, I have a home lab with a 2003 Server and XP boxes to actually do this on.

However, I am not sure how to export the files which would allow me to accomplish the same GPOs via script as well. I am not sure how to do this when I only have an XP machine and no admin rights to the machine or to a server.

FYI, I am in one of the most locked down environments in the USA.

Any ideas on what to do? :)

Thanks!

" I am not sure how to do this when I only have an XP machine and no admin rights to the machine or to a server"

You are admin at home right?

" I am not sure how to export the files which would allow me to accomplish the same GPOs via script as well. "

reason you haven't gotten an answer is you don't export gpos to make a script. You run a script via gpo. I think you misunderstood this part.

Hopefully this will point you in the right direction

Thanks for your answers. Yes, I am an admin at home.....but I now have access to an XP box here with admin rights so I can do this here.

My assignment is actually to implement several local policies on an xp machine by running group policy editor and do the below when complete.

My boss puts it as follows:

"Would like to see the exports of the files that would allow for these to be accomplished via script as well."

So after I am done implementing a GPO for example he wants me to produce the above.

Does this make sense?

Thank you

Update, I have determined that there should be a way to export the GPO settings to a file but it seems to require the Group Policy Management Console. This machine just has the Group Policy Editor. When I right click the policy, there is no option to export. Boss insists that the machine has everything that I need to create an export.

Security Configuration and Analysis is another....only problem is that my exports (.inf files) are almost blank and don't show any settings. Any ideas?
