  • Most new security templates should be based on predefined security templates.

  • Create security templates for computer roles, not for individual computers.

  • The Security Templates snap-in is a graphical tool for creating and editing security templates.

  • Secedit is a command-line tool that can create security templates based on an existing computer’s settings.

  • Security templates can be used to configure account policies, group memberships, event log settings, local policies, and permissions for folders, files, services, and the registry.

  • The easiest way to deploy security templates to multiple systems is to use Group Policy.

  • Group Policy can be applied to a domain, a site, or an OU.

  • You can further restrict which computers and users a Group Policy object applies to by restricting permissions to the Group Policy object, or by using WMI filtering.

  • You can use Secedit to apply a security template from the command line. By using Secedit, you can automatically deploy security policies to computers that are not members of a domain.

  • You can manually apply a security template to a computer by using the Security Configuration And Analysis snap-in.

  • Use Gpupdate to refresh policy before you begin troubleshooting and after each change you make to Group Policy.

  • The Advanced System Information tool in Help And Support Center is a graphical tool that provides a thorough description of GPOs applied to a user and computer.

  • Gpresult displays the most complete set of information about GPOs applied to a user and computer.
