GPO Problem

GPO Problem

GPO Problem

(OP)
I have a workstation GPO that is set to Persistant and Replace mode.  The workstation is now no longer in eDir and I need to clear this policy out.  Is there a way to do this?  There are a few reg keys that need to be updated but can't becuase of the GPO.

Zenworks 7
Windows XP SP2
Client 4.91 SP 5

RE: GPO Problem

This is from a script I compiled to do this for me automatically.  Change "winnt" to "windows" for XP and above, but the script kinda tells the tale of what needs to be done.

#region --- Delete old GroupPolicy directories ---
DirRemove("C:\WINNT\system32\GROUPPOLICY",1)
DirRemove("C:\WINNT\system32\GROUPPOLICY.WKSCACHE",1)
DirRemove("C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\GROUPPOLICY.WMORIGINAL",1)
#endregion --- Old GroupPolicy directories are removed ---

#region --- Remove Registry keys ---
RegDelete("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Workstation Manager\Group Policies\User")
RegDelete("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Workstation Manager\Group Policies\Workstation")
#endregion --- Registry Keys are removed ---


Basically you remove those directories (DirRemove) and then delete the registry keys (RegDelete) to relinquish control back to the local GPO.

Hope this is clear enough.

RE: GPO Problem

I also have this note in my script that might help:

Reference Novell TID#10059171 for the manual procedure to clean the GPOs out of the system.
