I just enabled a policy (domain wide) on my Windows 2008 server (sole domain controller) to "Display information about previous logons during user logon"
Since doing so, I was unable to log back in to my server! I received this message:“Security policies on this computer are set to display information about the last interactive logon. Windows could not retrieve this information. Please contact your network administrator for assistance.”
This is happening on all my Vista and Windows 7 clients as well. If I pull the ethernet cable from these machines I can get logged in but obviously this is a major incovenience and does not work with the domain controller.
I have tried been able to successfully log in to the DC in safe mode but when I go the the GPMC, I am faced with the message that the domain cannot be found.
How can I disable this policy if I cannot get logged into the DC to edit or delete the policy?
Software/Hardware used: Windows 2008 Server, Windows Vista Business, Windows 7 Professional
