  • distinct group policy

    Hi,

    I have two win xp sp2 system. when i am seeing group policy by gpedit.msc then both showing distinct configuration as i am giving below:

    1st one: user configuration/administrative Templates

    In administrative templates it is showing tabs Window components, Start Menu and Taskbar, Desktop, Control Panel, shared Folder, Network, System

    2nd one: user configuration/administrative Templates

    It is showing only windows component tab.

    so, Can you let me know why is it so ? i tried to find out from google but didn't get reason.

    Are you editing the local policy or a group policy?

        If you run gpedit.msc on a windows XP box, you will edit LOCAL policy -- which only shows some of the settings in the active directoy GROUP policies

        You will need to go to a domain controller and run group policy management (in admin tools) then choose a policy to edit that will be applied to your client PCs

          Is this the same issue as your earlier thread entitled tcp/ip?

            I know by domain controller group policy i can apply policy on both system with little bit effort.
            but adversity is that both are not a member of domain controller and i dont want to infuse on domain controller.

            And this is little bit same issue but in this i also want to know why gpedit.msc policy are distinct as i have mentioned in this post.

              If a PC is not a domain member, you have access to a limited set of policy options. If it isn't there, you cannot edit it.

              You could try finding the appropriate registry settings and having scripts that modify them directly.

              Why can't you join these machines to the domain?
