  • Hello Elie Aziz,

    Can you provide any more info related to how is/was your GPO configures?

    For example did you use Preferences or Administrative Templates?
    It was configured at a Computer or User level?

    Remember that GP Preferences does not eliminate the configurations made if you only disable de link, since they do not work like the administrative template does, you have to configure the same ITEM withint the Preferences configuration but with the opposite configuration. If was disable then we need a enable configuration, for a create, update or replace we will need a Delete action.

    Hope this info helps you to reach your goal. :D
