Hi Dawn,

The easiest way is to add the ADM templates to the Policies that you wish to use them in. This places them on the domain controller and everyone sees them. This means that they are not visible in any of your other policies, which is a good thing. (not like Vista, which has one receptacle for all the new ADMX files. So all Policies see the same files and if you change it for one policy, it changes for all policies....)

There are some default templates that Microsoft automatically copies from the local Windows/INF directory when you create a Policy. I have never understood how it decides which ones to copy (Any ideas Darren?). And it also (optionally) updates them from the local Windows/INF directory if there are newer ones there.

You can also set it up so that it uses the ADM files on the local workstation, but I think that is a bit silly, since the user may have older or newer versions etc.

Subject: [gptalk] Question on adding ADM Templates.




To have ADM template populate to all users who edit GPO's do they need to be installed on the domain controller or just on the workstation of the person using them? My main concern is the new IE 7 blocker template and the Office 2003 templates.

Any answers would be appreciated.

Thank you,
