Disable a Group Policy object link

Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To disable a Group Policy object link

  1. Do one of the following:

    • To disable a Group Policy object link to a domain or organizational unit, open Active Directory Users and Computers.

    • To disable a Group Policy object link to a site, open Active Directory Sites and Services.

  2. In the console tree, right-click the site, domain, or organizational unit to which the Group Policy object is linked, and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Group Policy tab.

  4. Right-click the Group Policy object link that you want to disable, click Disabled, and then click Yes. This switches the Disabled state to Active, and a check appears in the Disabled column.

Notes

  • To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the Domain Administrators security group, the Enterprise Administrators security group, or the Group Policy Creator Owners security group.

  • To open Active Directory Users and Computers, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.

  • To open Active Directory Sites and Services, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Sites and Services.

  • When you disable a Group Policy object link, the settings in the Group Policy object no longer apply to users or computers in the site, domain, or organizational unit to which the Group Policy object was linked; and they no longer apply to users and computers in child Active Directory containers that inherit those Group Policy settings.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
