Hello,

I am trying to get my Defualt Domain GPO under control. I inhereited an
installation that was undocumented and I need to get AD back to known state.
I have read KBAs 267553 and 226243 which tell you how to reset security
settings and user rights in the Default Domain policy. The articles talk
about the GptTmpl.inf file and how to modify it. This partcluar file in my
case is enormous and the articles only mention touching about 20 lines of
it. Our file has hundreds of File System entries as well as hundreds of
Registry entries.

Questions.

1. By defualt does the GptTmpl.inf file have File System and Registry
entries?
2. How would I go about getting rid of all the entries if I decided they
were of no use?

Thank you,

Pedro
