Hi Graham,

 

The default behavior is that a copy of the ADM template is taken and stored
on the Sysvol under the GUID for that Policy (
<file:///\\DomainName\Sysvol\DNSName\Policies\GUID\ADM>
\\DomainName\Sysvol\DNSName\Policies\GUID\ADM). It will use that version in
the future unless it finds a more recent version on the workstation, in
which case it will replace it.

 

You can modify the behavior so that it doesn't update the ADM file on the
Sysvol and you can also get it to always use the local copy of the ADM file.

on same note, what would be expected behaviour if we were to open a GPO,
which

contains settings from an ADM template, but the template file (ADM) is not
available

from the editing system ?

 

just thinking through the scenario of admin workstations on which ADM files
would be

generally stored being lost without backup of ADM files ?
