2003 server administrator locked out with group policies

By wpoole ·

I have a 2003 server in a workgroup with terminal services and ctirix metaframe installed. I was wrapping up the "hardening of the security and did a great job!!! The admin is locked out. I have restricted the run, access to all local drives...a,b,c,and d, control panel, and adding any snap-ins to MMC.

Is there any way around this? I just don't feel like reinstalling. As I sit here kicking myself in the butt for not loading the Netbackup client and doing a backup.

Any help much appreciated.

Scripts to save the day?

by marrio In reply to 2003 server administrator ...

I had a similar problem on a domain controller which was causing a major headache. Then I found this reference to GPMC scripts meaning I didn't need to run the MMC:

Use the backup ALL GPOs first and then run the delete script from the command line. You can then import the script again without linking it to an OU and make it safe. If you have any problems, feel free to email me.

Hope this helps!
