Group policy and traveling users - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

Hello all, I have an issue with laptop users who take their laptops home, and group policies applied in the office. How do we deal with traveling users with group policy? The group policy will still remain on their laptops even if those users do not logon to the office network. We have policies which prevent certain users from saving files locally, how would we "disable" this when they are offline? Is the only way to have them log onto the laptop locally or with another account? Any advice will is appreciated....

    Default Group policy and traveling users

    Hello all,
    I have an issue with laptop users who take their laptops home, and group
    policies applied in the office. How do we deal with traveling users with
    group policy? The group policy will still remain on their laptops even if
    those users do not logon to the office network. We have policies which
    prevent certain users from saving files locally, how would we "disable" this
    when they are offline?

    Is the only way to have them log onto the laptop locally or with another
    account?

    Any advice will is appreciated.

    Yes, using some account that does not have that policy
    applied.

    On the one hand, you're telling the OS you don't want
    these people to save locally under any cirstances.

    On the other hand, you're telling the OS that you DO want
    these people to save locally, but in only certain cases.

    Under any cirstances trumps certain cases, I'm afraid.

    What is the reason for the 'don't save locally' policy?
    Perhaps there's another way to go about this.
