cannot turn off Windows Firewall after deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I captured W7 on HP Probook 6570b  -  fresh installation with apps added, never was in Domain. Firewall was turned off before capture.

    The problem: after deployment all options on Firewall screen are greyed out with FW turned ON. It says that FW is managed by Admin. Nice :)

    The only account that is enabled is Administrator.

    In Local GPO Win FW was activated for the domain (probably it is the default, never checked it before) I changed it to not configured. In local GPO Firewall Standard profile everything is not configured. Sure I did reboot with knowing that it will not help.

    The question:

    what to do? is it SYSPREP's job?   Can I turn off the firewall in TS or XML?

    The bad thing that even after adding the machine to domain and with applied GPO that pushes FW to turn off  the thing is still greyed out.

    Hope it is easy question :)... and it is just me that doesn't know what to do.
