Hello Everyone, I hope Group Policy is treating every one well.. ;)

I was wondering if anyone has a list or a link that has all of the new group 
policy settings added by sp2. If anyone does could you please forward me the 
link or file.

Thank You

Take Care and Have Fun --JOhn

Like I already said, _vbscript_ is the only way to set variable's and write it with regwrite to the registry on startup. ADM templates will not do the job. I also wonder why you want to hardcode the terminal license server as it uses the discovery process to discover the license server on the LAN. The only way I can think of is if you have your license server behind a firewall or in the dmz wich would in both ways a non logical decission.

Yes, _vbscript_ would be the best way to do this. Just pass a parameter to the script so that you don’t have to hard code it in every time. Then all you have to do is copy the GPO and change the parameter that is passed.

It's not really dynamic, but could you use an environment variable / startup script to define the licence server name in the key?

e.g. set LICSRV via TS startup script then set ADM to write key as

KEYNAME "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters\LicenseServers\%LICSRV%"

This has been asked before and I know of no way to change key names using ADM syntax. Perhaps some of the brighter ADM folks on this list have an idea.

Hi Tony, as discussed, I would like GP to create a registry key and to have the ability to change the name of the key...This way we can just copy the policy and enter the new license server if a new customer or the license server needs to be changed for DR..etc


Unfortunately W2K3 uses keys as opposed to reg_sz values that W2K uses for specifying license servers.


I haven't been able to find a way to get GP to allow me to dynamically change a key name in the same way that you can a value.


Example below...server name needs to be dynamic...hope this makes sense....thanks
