Mary,

There is a setting to turn off the automatic update of ADM templates in
User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Group Policy.
And, the settings are not stored in the ADM template, rather, the
template defines what settings are available.  The settings are stored
in the policy.  So, updating the template does not change the settings
(in some cases, it changes the name of the setting, and in others adds
new settings).  There is also a setting to Always use local ADM files
for the Group Policy snap-in in Computer Configuration | Administrative
Templates | System | Group Policy that if not configured or disabled,
always uses the ADM from the GPO itself (the template it was created
with, and or updated (if the former setting was not enabled [earlier
default behavior]).

Thanks Darren. 
I know that there are only a few settings added with sp1 but the entire
ADM template would overwrite the one I have if I ran GPMC from the
server.  The one I'm concerned about is the inetres.adm.  Eventually I
will need to incorporate the changes into my production ADM(XPsp2).  Am
I wrong in thinking that I will have to reset every setting in the new
ADM? Or has Microsoft provided a way to import the current settings into
the newer ADM? 
Thanks for your help.
Mary

Hello,
I have just been informed that our DCs are scheduled to be upgraded to
Windows 2003 service pack 1.  I run the GPMC on a Windows XPsp2 PC.  As
long as I only use an XPsp2 machine to run the GPMC I should not have
any problems, correct? It is only if I run the GPMC from the DC that my
ADM templates would get updated.  I just want to be sure that I don't
have to worry about my current settings getting overwritten.  Thanks for
your help.
Mary Collingwood

Mary-
That is correct. In any case, if some GPOs do get upgraded, the
difference between the 2003, SP1 and XP,SP 2 ADMs are negligible anyway
(see www.gpoguy.com/admdiffs.htm for details).
