    Hi

    for backup you can use group policy management .

    Back up a Group Policy object using GPMC

  • As a best practice, you should not really edit these two policies. If you are not editing them, you can always restore them by using DCGPOFix.

  • Hi YahYa,

    The link works at windows server 2008 and it didn't work at windows server 2003 because I don't have GPMC installed just the default GPO editor from there I can't seem to be able to backup the Default Domain policy and Default Domain controller group policy.

    I want to backup Default Domain policy and Default Domain controller group policy  in windows server 2003 without install GPMC.

    Regard,

    Thanks.

  • There is no need to backup both Default Policies!

    RULE 1: NEVER TOUCH THE DEFAULT DOMAIN POLICY

    RULE 2: IF YOU DO IT YOU WILL RUN IN HUGE TROUBLES

    Why?

    If you do some changes within the Default GPO and you have some troubles you will lost this settings. If you have any trouble with the default GPO's you can easy delete them and rebuild them with the command:

    dcgpofix /target:both

    Whenever I have a Training I'll brand my Students not to touch them.

    If you ignore RULE1 it's not a big problem because you can do some settings or change this policy with ervery settings. BUT I'll promise to you there will be the day for pay back time if you do it. ;-)

    In short word's - you don't need a Backup if you don't touch them. Keep them by default and this will solve a lot of troubles if you run ever within troubles.

    Best regards!
