Im confused concerning the difference between the GPO choices of Disabled and Not Configured. What is the difference?
Although the Disabled selection doesnt mean the same thing in all cases, generally, Disabled will reverse a policy setting that is enacted at a higher level. If a setting is Not Configured it means to apply a higher level policy setting. Simply said, Disabled reverses a high policy for that particular setting while Not Configured does simply nothing.
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
