    Group Policy Property on server 2003 - This operation has been cancelled due to restr

    Hello,
    We are running a windows server 2003 (sp2) as a domain controller. By mistake and while trying to set some software installation restrictions for users, one of our technicians opened gpedit.msc and edited the settings in a way that the administrator of the server cannot run/open any programs or open gpedit on the server as everything gives the error “This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect of this computer”. Specifically and from what he remembers, in the Group Policy Property he enabled “Always install with elevated privileges” and “Run only allowed Windows applications”. I ve tried running cmd, loggin with a different account as well as going into safe mode but again nothing changes.
    How can we fix / reverse this?

    the restrictions enabled, apply only to the domain server. there is no such policy on the other servers or workstations so disabling it on another server, does not change anything.

    presumably though the settings are in a gpo rather than via local gpedit so that policy can be disabled from another pc if not revert to a backup you might ba able to use regedit remotely to remove the keys its set or possibly find ANY program that is allowed and rename the msc to that name
