Hello all,
I have an issue with laptop users who take their laptops home, and group
policies applied in the office. How do we deal with traveling users with
group policy? The group policy will still remain on their laptops even if
those users do not logon to the office network. We have policies which
prevent certain users from saving files locally, how would we "disable" this
when they are offline?

Is the only way to have them log onto the laptop locally or with another

Any advice will is appreciated.
