Normally when you deliver WF settings via Group Policy, the ability to
manually change the firewall settings at the client machine is grayed out
(i.e. unavailable) regardless of which profile is in effect. It sounds like
you're saying that is only true if the DC is operating in domain profile
mode. But, when a standard profile is detected, he is able to change them
locally? Correct?

Subject: [gptalk] Domain controller firewall setttings...

A co-worker of mine is trying to control his domain controllers firewall
settings via group policies. He has enabled the server 2003 firewall and is
unable to modify the DC's firewall settings when the policy is set at
"domain profile". He is able to modify the firewall when it is set to
standard profile.
Has anyone seen anything like this before and\or can anyone confirm if this
is standard?
