Hi all,


I tried to set up a GPO to deploy an ODBC link using the
'Preferences\Control Panel Settings\Data Sources' setting.


It failed with the following error in the Application log:


"The computer 'Dimensions' preference item in the 'Install:Dimensions
{A2376B80-4591-4E8A-BF0D-0F5EAA0B92E4}' Group Policy object did not
apply because it failed with error code '0x80004005 Unspecified error'
This error was suppressed."


Having done a bit of searching it appears to be a bug as described at
the following link:




Has anyone successfully done this (and therefore it isn't a bug)?


Darren - have you got any insight into this and/or a predicted solution


Is it possible to do this using standard group policy?


Many thanks
