  1. I am trying to apply group policy's to 30 computer in my office. I am using the gpedit.msc to edit the local policy on my PC. I dont want to go from computer to computer spending about 15 minutes each configuring the setting for it.

    Is there any way to take a copy of my policy and just paste it into another PC without having to sit there and configure each one?

    Hi,

    Xp professional is mainly used as a client os in domain network environment. So any policy designed at domain level can be easily implemented in the client systems.

    While XP provides the facility of group policy setting for the local system as well, when any policy has been set, it makes changes in the registry of that system for its application. So it is not at all possible throught means to design a unique policy and importing it on every system in workgroup environment.

    U have to set the policy on every single system.

    :)
