    Group Policy Objcts are used on your Domain clients, they are controlled
    from the Domain Controller. Domain Controller Policy is your local Server
    Policy changing settings here will only apply to the Server. You will also
    have a Local Security Policy that applies only to that local client
    machines. Hope this helps

    Console of group policy consist of several extensions (Administrative
    templates, Logon/Logoff Scripts, etc). Security Configuration is one of this
    extension.

    Domain Controller Security policy snap-in is just group policy object editor
    mapped to Domain Controllers default policy security extension.

    both are GPOs.

    The Domain Controller Security Policy is a shortcut to the security
    settings in the GPO called Default Domain Controllers Policy and
    Domain Security Policy is a shortcut to the security settings in the
    GPO called Default Domain Policy

    DEFAULT DC POL
    C:WINDOWSsystem32dcpol.msc
    /gpobject:"LDAP://CN={6AC1786C-016F-11D2-945F-00C04fB984F9},CN=Policie
    s,CN=System,DC=DOMAIN,DC=COM"

    DEFAULT DOMAIN POL
    C:WINDOWSsystem32dompol.msc
    /gpobject:"LDAP://CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policie
