Revert and Discard Changes

A policy locked by a user can be unlocked. The policy is reverted to the previous version. After unlocking the policy, the user account that locked the policy can no longer save or check in changes to that policy.

You can follow these steps when a policy is checked out using the MMC snap-in.

You must be an Administrator or Policy Administrator.

To unlock and discard the changes to a policy:

  1. Go to Policies.
  2. Find the policy, and then select Revert & Discard Changes from the menu.
  3. Click Revert & Discard.
