secedit /generaterollback
secedit /import
secedit /validate

Parameters

Parameter Description
secedit /analyze Allows you to analyze current systems settings against baseline settings that are stored in a database. The analysis results are stored in a separate area of the database and can be viewed in the Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in.
secedit /configure Allows you to configure a system with security settings stored in a database.
secedit /export Allows you to export security settings stored in a database.
secedit /generaterollback Allows you to generate a rollback template with respect to a configuration template.
secedit /import Allows you to import a security template into a database so that the settings specified in the template can be applied to a system or analyzed against a system.
secedit /validate Allows you to validate the syntax of a security template.
Remarks
  • If there is no filepath specified, all filenames will default to the current directory.

  • Your analysis results are stored in a separate area of the database and can be viewed in the Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in to the MMC.

  • If your security templates are created by using the Security Template snap-in, and if you run the Security Configuration and Analysis snap-in against those templates, the following files are created:
