Good morning!

After changing my default domain policy GPO to enable Windows Hello For Business, I can no longer sign into ANY of my normal or admin domain users and get this message every time?!

"You must use Windows Hello or a smart card to sign in."

How can I undo this?

    Don't worry..
    Log on as a domain administrator to a DC.
    open a CMD with Admin Rights and type:

    dcgpofix /target:Domain

    To reset the Default DC GPO, type : dcgpofix /target:DC

    If you need to reset also de default Domain Controller policy do :
    dcgpofix /target:both

    after that, do :
    repadmin /syncall /AdeP

    Hello @homegeeksnet

    Additionally to revert back the changes.

    If you can not login to any of Domain PCs after this GPO then Install Windows Admin tools and access the GPO settings from there by entering your Domain Admin credentials
    Press Shift button and right click to run as different user then enter your Domain credentials.
