DCGPOFIX a tool for reseting Default GPOs


I came across this tool recently when trying to recover a domain in a training environment.

One of the students had managed to delete his Default Domain Policy!

So to recover it I ran the following: dcgpofix /target:domain

It can also be used to recover the Default Domain Controllers Policy

dcgpofix /target:dc

By default with specifying the target, you will reset both policies.

NOTE: be very careful with this tool, as it will wipe out any settings you currently have in your default policies!

For more info on the tool check:
