  • Dear,

    It being the legacy GPO you wont be in a position to delete the content. You have to recreate the policy in windows 2012 and delete the old one.

    But I usually modify legacy template by following the below steps. I hope you may have windows 2003 member server present in your environment.

    From windows 2003 server use dsa.msc and select the particular OU where the policy has been applied and right click select Group policy.

    it will open the Group policy editor with the legacy settings. You can select not configured for the settings you want to remove.

    Thanks

    Naaah....
     
    > From windows 2003 server
     
    Nobody uses 2003 server anymore...
     
    To remove IEM from an existing GPO: Run dsa.msc, enable View - Advanced
    features.
     
    In gpmc.msc, identify the GUID of your GPO. In dsa, navigate to
    System-Policies-YourGUID. Right click "properties", Attribute Editor tab.
     
    Find gPCUserExtensionNames - copy and paste to notepad.
    Search for a pair of [] that contains 2 GUIDS, where one of them is
    {A2E30F80-D7DE-11d2-BBDE-00C04F86AE3B}
     
    Remove the GUID pair and the surrounding []. Copy and paste back into
    gPCUserExtensionNames.
     
    Done.

  • This worked for me, thanks! I know this is an old(er) thread, but I Googled the problem and this was pretty high up the results list. So for anyone else who has this problem, this solution definitely works!

  • Hi,

    Worked like a charm!

    My issue was that I was unable to update even my current GPP's on windows 2012r2 with the error: "Error (0x80071128) occured saving settings. The data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid."

    Thank you.

  • This worked straight away for me.

    Server 2008R2 with IE 11

    I was unable to remove my proxy settings on a huge old policy. The internet explorer maintenance settings were showing up in the setting summary but had disappeared from the Group Policy editor so i couldn't remove the settings.

    followed the above steps after backing the policy up.

    Thanks you for your help.
