Yes, you can use a Computer Startup script to perform the filecopy (you are in the correct location within the GPO). This is done in the context of the SYSTEM account, so make sure to give Domain Computers access to the network share with the new HOSTS file. The GPO must be linked to some OU (or the Domain Level) depending on how many machines you want to "hit". You can filter this further with OU levels, Security permissions or WMI filters.

Is there a policy I can create to successfully write over or copy over the existing hosts file? I have the following GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings Scripts Startup. ( The script is located on the domain controller) Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Scripts\Run Startup scripts visible. Do I need to add each PC in the domain to this GPO? Any suggestions are appreciated. Terry Burton Network Admin/System Engineer DSI Labs/LCA Fort Myers, FL _____ Looking for last minute shopping deals?
