I’ve created two VMs, and started editing local GPO. How can I convert them to security templates in order to use all those settings on other Win7/Win2008R2 machines? I’ve tried with secedit and /mergedpolicy switch, but that didn’t work for me. Thanks in advance! Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
