Using SCM 3.0 with Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed SCM 3.0 on Windows 8.1, and I then imported the 8.1 "Beta" baseline and made a copy and modified it.  I want to make sure I understand the general schema of how this tool would be used with Windows 8.1 on a standalone computer (no domain):

    1) Use the SCM 3.0 to edit baseline configurations, and to export those as a GPO Folder

    2) Use the LocalGPO command line tool to import the GPO Folders as the current local security policy (assuming you are not in a domain with the settings in group policy).

    3) Use secpol.msc to view the current security policy.

    Is this the basic idea?   It's a very disconnected set of user interfaces, and somewhat confusing.

    It looks like secpol.msc can only view a subset of all things you can configure in the baseline?  Is LocalGPO applying the full baseline settings?
