    Updating Policys ASAP

    Guys I have been updating all the policys on our network using a 2008R2 server (This one is only temp, its actually just a standard pc, until we upgrade our server to it)

    On the following policys

    - Default Domain Policy
    - Default Domain Controllers Policy

    I found out that that must have the default Unique ID that it comes with

    I have found the policies will not delete from GPMC

    I have made the new Group policy files to replace them with, but how to I go round replaceing the old ones with the new ones has they will not delete

    Has anyone else brothered updating these policies to the new 2008R2 policy settings?

    Or am I being silly? Does it upgrade when I connect the first 2008R2 server to the network like I have just done?

    You can delete GPOs you are no longer using. You have to go to a specific location in the Group Policy Management Console.

    Can't remember exactly where I can post more detail tomorrow if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    yer I know where to delete the Group Policy Objects in GPMC

    I can delete the links for both default policys

    but cant actually delete the objects under group policy object, doesnt not let me, I can delete any other object if I wanted (This is where you mean davep)

    I can't picture what is [not] happening for you. Before I contribute more I will need to have a look at our network tomorrow. Sorry.
