    I just took over IT on a Small Business Server 2000 and a 2nd box that is
    running 2000 server in application mode. My problem is that there is a
    policy that removes shutdown and ability to add remove on all the machines,
    I know this is good for the terminal server but I would rather this not be
    applied to the work stations, Problem is I can't find where this is set, I
    have looked at the default domain policy and it is not in there, and I don't
    see any other policys listed there, Where do I go to modify this to just
    apply to the terminal server.

  2. There's a great tool for this called Resultant Set of Policy. On an XP
    desktop where you're seeing the policy you want to change or delete, click
    Start -> Run. Type rsop.msc and hit OK. This will result in a console that
    shows all the policies applied to that PC and user account. Drill down
    until you find the relevant policy, and it'll tell you where it's applied

    that is an awesome tool, that tells me what the name of the policy, but I
    can't figure out where I can edit that policy, Like in 2003 SBS I can go to
    Group Policy management and see all the policys but in 2000 the only place I
    know to look is in Active directory users and comps, there I can see the
    default policy only
