What exactly are you trying to secure as that is a huge topic? Security
templates are comptuer configuration and apply to the compatible computers
and everyone who logs onto them. For a domain, it is easiest and best to
make changes to security and Group Policy at the domain or Organizational
Unit level. Password/account policy can only be applied at the domain policy
level and will apply equally to all domain users. Be careful with changing
security options as you can lock out computers [especially "downlevel"
clients] with incompatbile settings and it is best to try a few test
computers or better yet isolated test domain if possible. The link below may
help. --- Steve
