Hi,

The new policy templates can be detuned to work on NT 4.0, just delete the
version checking stuff at the beginning.

Another way to achieve what you want is to apply the lockdown to the default
user, and set the users you want to lock down with a separate TS profile.

Regards,

Rick

Subject: [THIN] AD style policies in NT4 domain



Hi there all

I am currently deploying a Windows 2000/MF XPe farm in an NT4 domain (with
no hope of a domain upgrade to Win2k/AD anytime soon)

There is a requirement to deploy a locked down desktop to some users.
Additionally, I want to insure that admins still get a fully functional
desktop when they access the servers. Under Active Directory and Group
Policy this is a slam dunk.

I can use gpedit to configure the local policy but there is no facility to
screen policies/settings based on group membership without AD. It's
basically an all or nothing lock down.

I could use System Policy Editor (poledit) to do this, but the new policy
templates (system.adm, inetres.adm) and settings are not supported and I
hate the interface.

Does anyone know of a way that I would be able to use the new policy
templates and apply some very simple group filtering logic to achieve this?

Thanks
