I got a response back from the product team that they are aware of the issue
but do not have an ETA on the fix. If they don't know that probably means
its down in a queue somewhere waiting for resources. Sorry that wasn't more

I will check with the product team on this. I have not come across this but
in looking at the error code, that is an "Access Denied" error. Something
doesn't have permissions somewhere. That doesn't help much J. 


In terms of using Standard GP, I suspect this stuff is just held in the
registry, but haven't investigated how/where. You may be able to use GP
Preferences Registry extension to work around this.

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
