Enrico-
If you're editing those GPOs from a 2003 machine, then what may be 
happening is that you have the policy set to only use local ADMs when 
editing GPOs. That's why I asked you to look at the ADMs in c:\windows\inf 
on the 2003 machine where you're editing policy. Verify that they are 
intact and if not, that might be your problem.

"That seems strange that the PDC's file are wrong." 

The size and date of all PDC's file are are correct (same size and date of 
second DC's file) 

"So, you double-checked the size of the files on both the PDC and the 
second DC?" Yes 


" Where are you editing these GPOs from? " From second DC with 2003 
standard edition sp1 Italian 


"Are you editing them from an XP workstation? " No 

"If so, then just for the sake of being thorough, take a look at the ADM 
files in c:\windows\inf on that machine and see if they are truncated. " 
I'm not understand. 

thx 

Enrico

Thank Darren 
I  check and the ADM files stored in SYSVOL are really of the correct 
size. 

In my domain I have 2 DC the master have the problem above, but in the 
slave (BDC) I see that the Default Domain Policy (open in remote on master 
DC)  settings are correct:  I see all Administrative templates. 

Have you other suggestions? 
thx 
Enrico

Enrico- 
Double check that the ADM files stored in SYSVOL are really of the correct 
size. For example, on the PDC emulator, go into SYSVOL\Policies\<GUID of 
GPO>\ADM and look the ADM files there. Compare their size to a known good 
copy of the ADMs to ensure they have not been truncated or otherwise 
edited. One good test might be to create a new GPO from your usual GP 
Editing workstation and see if all of the correct ADM settings are 
present.

Thank Darren 

I verify and the View, Filtering, "Only show configured policy settings" 
is not checked. 

Have you other suggestions?

Enrico- 
Is it possible that the GP Editor is set to only show configured policies? 
Under the GP Editor menu, check that  View, Filtering, "Only show 
configured policy settings" is not checked.

Hi, 
I have a regular installation of Windows 2003 standard edition server SP1 
(Italian version) with services: 
-AD 
-WINS 
-DNS 

I have a problem regarding Default Domain GPO. 

Recently i wanted to review my GPO Settings, but now i see something 
strange. 

When i open "Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates" 

I only see the folowing: 
Windows Components 

and I don't see: 
-Start Menu and Task Bar 
-Desktop 
-Control Panel 
-Shared Folders 
-Network 
-System 


I proof to add Templates and the windows show that are installed: 


Conf          (25/03/2003) 
Inetres (25/03/2005) 
System        (25/03/2005) 
Wmplayer(25/03/2005) 
Wuau        (25/03/2005) 

I need to modify Desktop Policy but I can't 

Does anyone know how to get them back? 
Thx. 

Enrico
