    Made a boo boo

    Decided to play around with joining my W7 laptop to RM domain by creating new OU and blocking inheritance etc.

    Unfortunately something went amiss as now i cant log on as domain account or local admin! applies personal settings then just doesnt move on from the next screen.

    I have booted into safe mode and removed from domain but still same issue - its obviously trying to run a rm policy but im a bit stuck. Have run gpreport /h and outputted to html file to see whats going on but nothing obvious.

    Any ideas

    Ok thanks but sorry im not sure what that has to do with this problem?!?

    Logs on fine as i always use W7 so know the domain\workgroup is needed when member of domain. It just stopping after applying settings.

    try running this in the command prompt this should reset everything policy related by to defualt

    Code:
    secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

    thanks - worked when i re-tried it how odd.

    Anyway didnt solve the problems unfortunately im stuck on black screen with white cursor. No freezing can move mouse etc but its struggling to do something with regards to whatever joining it to the rm domain did.

    Update on this - running gpresult /z shows the computer GP is being applied from the RM server

    How do i simply remove the link to the rm server? thought it be easy but struggling!

    Not yet that was a last attempt before rebuild option!

    Kind of want to solve this in case i play around with other PCs/Laptops and joining them to current domain. Having said that its very doubtful i will try this again!

    I havent had this before to be honest so i am a little lost. The command above normal does the trick. But i have never dealt with RM networks so there might be something in there making it stick.

    For clarity, as this confused me the first time I read it.

    If you want to log on as the local administrator, username "Administrator" or ".\Administrator"
    If you want to log on as the domain administrator, username "Domain\Administrator"
