At this point, I think I've run out of ideas. If the ADM files in sysvol are
the same, if they are same on the local drive, and the GP Editor is not
filtering the view, then there is no reason you should be missing settings.

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. 
  
Darren

"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

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
