Hi folks-

Just an FYI, I got some information about Group Policy Preferences and RSAT
(Remote Server Admin. Tools). The first is that RSAT will not be available
as a separate download until "late March". What I did hear is that MS is
trying to get a beta version out there that works with Vista SP1 in the


With respect to Group Policy Preferences and DesktopStandard PolicyMaker
co-existence/migration, MS has some plans to deliver a script that will
convert PolicyMaker settings to GPP settings, but no timeframe yet on that.


Hope that information helps J
