  • creating custom adm and linked to gpo in windows 2003 AD

    Hi

    I have been trying to find a way to push date format changes to XP SP2 machine in windows 2003 SP1 Active directory environment. I have found very useful info here in this site/forum including regional.txt sample custom adm which i am going to paste below. the other solution i came up with is to use startup script with gpo but i like to go with adm.

    I know that i have to linked this custom adm to user section of gpo. But i need to use a gpo its user section settings are disabled since it is designed to be applied to XP SP2 client machines in domain. suppose that you had to use this gpo and were not allowed to enable user section of gpo to use this adm. in this case is it possible to linked this custom template to computer section of gpo so that i can still leave the gpo as it is , user settings disabled, and have it work providing that necessery changes is made to custom adm.

    and secondly i have tried to modify this sample that i found on this site but i was unable to do so, i couldnt make it work. I am not a programmer and never understand coding. but i am only interested in date format changes section tough. if somebody could have time to direct me how to modify this just to reflect date section ( to change from dd/mm/yyyy to mm/dd/yyyy), it will be greatly appriciated. below is the the sample adm that i found in this forum a while ago. I also uploaded file here.

    i think first line needs to be changed to computer if it is possible to linked it to computer setting of gpo

    thanks to all in advance

    This is an user's preference, it is not a configuration of the machine.
    If you use a startup script you can set it as Default User configuration, but that will only affect the new users on this computer.

    You can create a new GPO, but do not link this new GPO to the OU that is containing the ComputerAccounts.
    Now you can choose to add a logon script that can change the current user settings, or you can add the adm template and configure the user-configuration part of this new GPO.

    Link this GPO to the OU containing the UserAccounts.
