  1. The dcgpofix command is available in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008, except for Server Core installations.

Restore the Default Domain Policy GPO to its original state. You will lose any changes you have made to this GPO. The best way is to configure the Default Domain Policy GPO only to manage the default Account Policies, Password Policy, Account Lockout Policy, and Kerberos Policy settings. In this example, you ignore the version of the Active Directory schema so that the dcgpofix command is not limited to the same schema as the Windows version, in which the command is moved.

 dcgpofix /ignoreschema /target:Domain 

Restore Default Domain Controllers Policy GPO to its original state. You will lose any changes you have made to this GPO.
