Disallow changing of geographic location

This policy setting prevents users from changing their user geographical location (GeoID). If you enable this policy setting users cannot change their GeoID. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting users may select any GeoID. If you enable this policy setting at the computer level it cannot be disabled by a per-user policy setting. If you disable this policy setting at the computer level the per-user policy is ignored. If you do not configure this policy setting at the computer level restrictions are based on per-user policy settings. To set this policy setting on a per-user basis make sure that the per-computer policy setting is not configured.
