Description

The Unlock-ControlledGpo cmdlet unlocks controlled Group Policy Objects (GPOs) in an Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) archive. You can edit an unlocked GPO. Unlocking a GPO is the equivalent of checking out a GPO.

Examples

Example 1: Unlock all locked GPOs

PS C:\>Get-ControlledGpo | Where {$_.VaultState -eq "CHECKED_IN"} | Unlock-ControlledGpo -Comment "Unlock all GPOs"

This command uses the Get-ControlledGpo cmdlet to get all controlled GPOs in the current domain. The command passes those GPOs to the Where-Object cmdlet. That cmdlet passes any GPOs that have a state of CHECKED_IN to the current cmdlet. This cmdlet unlocks all of those GPOs. The cmdlet includes an explanatory comment.

If you do not specify a domain, this cmdlet uses the domain of the current user.
