    I'm a tool, I screwed up the first post and then just replied to that one
    instead of creating a new one... here is my actual post, hopefully in the
    right place this time.


    going to be including a secedit command in a script running on server 2008
    such as:

    SECEDIT /configure /db PassPol.sdb /cfg PassPol.inf /log secedit.log

    after running this command the PassPol.sdb file is created in the current
    directory, which is also where the PassPol.inf file is located.

    1. after the command completes can I delete the PassPol.sdb and PassPol.inf

    2. where do these settings go after this runs? registry? other config files?

    any input is appreciated, thanks.

    as I clearly stated, I accidently posted an incomplete question... then I
    went to post again and it wound up as a reply to the accidental incomplete
    post... I now realize I did not mistakenly reply to that post, I did start a
    'new' post but since it had the same subject it was automatically shown as a
    reply to the original, incomplete post. Maybe that is just how my newreader
    displays it, and it is actually displayed correctly elseware. Regardless, I
    posted because I have a question I am hoping to get an answer to, so why
    would I leave it incomplete, or appearing to have an answer, which it

    I don't know how it appears to you, but in my newsreader there are two
    separate threads each with some active discussion.

    Having made the (very common) mistake of submitting an incomplete post, your
    best approach would have been to have replied to the original with an
    amendment. The reason there is some confusion now is that there are two
    independent threads, each containing what you originally wanted to post plus
    some of the responses.

    There's not much that can be done to fix this, short of you replying to ONE
    of these threads to advise readers to follow the other one.
