Technically local security policy is by definition "local" to that machine. You can try copying the contents of one machines' LGPO contents to another, but this isn't always going to work. I guess the question is, are all of the settings you are modifying in the local GPO policy? If so, they're all just registry settings, so figuring out which registry value each policy changes and to what data you'd like the value set means you can really do this with a .reg import of the settings. Unless you're modifying things like adding certificates or setting service configuration (both of which can be scripted using other tools, btw), anything in the Administrative tools section (and a lot of things in the other sections) are just registry values.

True, you could use secedit /export to export the current security settings on a system to a configuration database on Win7. However, this only gets things you can configure under the local security policy - it won't get anything under Windows Settings or Administrative Templates in gpedit, so if you want those settings, you have to live with manually copying \Windows\System32\GroupPolicy to redistribute it (and hoping the gPCMachineExtensionNames GUIDs match on all machines), or apply registry settings for those settings instead from a .reg (but this doesn't enforce if changed later, of course, like policy would).

You might be interested in looking into Microsoft's Security Compliance Manager (SCM) instead.

Customize Local Security Policy
What can I do in the LSP to enhance my machine and windows 7? I love customization, but don't want to go in to anything an start clicking. I really don't know what else I can do with it inside the LSP. For example, I added the CTL + ALT + DEL function. Is there anything else or not?

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
