Hi, You can sort of make it work by having two policies, one with the XP settings that gets applied to all machines then a second policy, containing the 200 settings that has a filter to exclude the XP machines. This means the XP machines only get the XP settings, the 200o machines also get the XP settings, but they are then overwritten by the settings in the second policy.

Heidelberg Sent: Saturday, 22 December 2007 10:22 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Re: Filters for Win2K and WinXP Hi, With XP and up you can use WMI filters - Windows 2000 will however ignore those filters (and just apply the policy). So, out of the box (pr. default) you will have to control the GPO filtering by controlling your OU's (2000 machines in one OU and XP machines in another) and placing GPOs on correct OUs - or Security Groups (2000 machines in one group and XP machines in another) and set appropriate permissions (Read + Apply Group Policy) on the different GPOs. But, a free third party solution is available: http://www.mml.ru/WMIF2K/ - offering Windows 2000 WMI filtering - be sure to test this in separate environment though.

I have the ADM files for Office2K and Office2003 from the Resource Kit. Is there a way in the GPO to check if the PC that the user is on is a Win2K or WinXP so it can apply the appropriate settings for the Office ADM files? ========================================================== Dana Mendoza Maui Memorial Medical Center Information Technology 221 Mahalani St. Phone: (808) 243-3094 Wailuku, HI 96793 E-Mail: dmendoza@xxxxxxxx Fax: (808) 242-2249 ========================================================== Confidentiality Notice: This email message, including any attachments, is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
