Exporting Local Security Settings

Hello all.

This is place looks like the best resource I could find.

I have a Windows Vista machine set up at work. I have setup a local policy for non-administrators. This may be a stupid question, but is there a way I can save the current settings as a .inf or some other kind of template? Or do I have to create the settings as a template first and then apply it?

I have tried using the Security Templates snap-in and I can easily create a template and go through everything to make sure it has the settings I want, but I really don't want to go through that trouble and I would much rather just save the current settings as a template if possible.

Thanks for any help, I realize I might kick myself when I find out how easy this really is.

If you click on one of the policies I can see that you can then right click and select export however I don't know what good that'll do you because I don't see an option to import so all that would do would be to give you a reference. As far as I know applying the permissions applies to all of the accounts and only administrators can change most of them (if not all them). You could also try group policy editor. http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/222866-local-group-policy-editor-open.html

Thanks for your help. I will try to do something with the group policy editor.
