By using group policy settings, sometimes you may experience issues on servers and desktops, and there are some cases in which you have to reset the local policy of a server.
- registry corruption
- policy file corruption
- just cannot update group policy and you want to give a try
How to do it (applies to Windows Server 2012 R2) *
- Run this command:
secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose
- Delete the registry.pol file:
- Restart the Server
In case you have issues with firewall configuration pushed by Group Policy you should delete the key
from the registry first.
