[THIN] Re: POLEDIT policy in an Active Directory

This only has to be done if you want the policy settings to flow
automatically.  You can change the location of the .POL files to any
arbitrary share you want by changing the "NetworkPath" and "UpdateMode"
registry entries in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Update key of the
registry.

I would try what you suggest, but then the Terminal Server policies would
apply to the non-terminal client machines as well, and that is not what I
want...

Anyone at all have Policy Files working outside of the NETLOGON share in an
Active Directory?

Thanks,

You will need to put your .pol file on the Nttlogon share on your Windows
2000 domain controllers, without referencing a manual I think by default
this is your SYSVOL folder
