    I need a way to apply some security settings in an automated fashion as part
    of the server setup process. The server setup process has to remain fully
    automated, no user interaction. Pushing domain based GPO's post setup is not
    an option (I won't detail reasons as I don't want to waste your time)

    This is really for a base configuration, that can be changed by the actual
    admins after servers are delivered, if desired. Its just a starting config,
    does not need to be 'enforced'.

    so, to do this for server 2k3 I would have used secedit.exe to apply a
    security template (which can easily be included in existing scripts)... is
    this still a valid option for server 2k8? Are there other, better options
    for server 2k8?

    any input is appreciated. thanks.
