Assign or unassign IPSec policy on a computer

Updated: January 21, 2005

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

To assign or unassign IPSec policy on a computer

  1. Create a console containing IP Security Policies. Or, open a saved console file containing IP Security Policies.

  2. In the console tree, click IP Security Policies on Name.

  3. In the details pane, click the IPSec policy that you want to assign or unassign, and then do one of the following:

    • To assign the policy, click the Action menu, and then click Assign.

    • To unassign the policy, click the Action menu, and then click Un-assign.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.

  • To create a console containing IP Security Policies, start the IP Security Policies snap-in. To open a saved console file, open MMC. For more information, see Related Topics.

  • If a policy is currently assigned and you assign a new policy, the currently assigned policy is automatically unassigned.

  • If the computer is a member of a Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 domain and IPSec policy is assigned at the domain level, then the assigned local computer policy is not used.

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.
