Importing a Group Policy template, then using it questions.

LiquidRetro 12,662 4,824 August 20, 2015 at 01:21 PM
I am pretty new on group policy but have done a couple of things with the help of the internet. One of the vendors we use offer a group policy to control their program that I want to implement it on my domain. I went to my domain controller and imported the ADMX and ADML files into %windir%\PolicyDefinitions and then saw it in the "Local Group Policy Editor". However when I look at the group policy management editor for the domain I don't see this policy or any under "Administrative Templates".

I am guessing I am importing these files incorrectly to put them on the domain side vs just the local. What am I doing incorrectly?

When applying ADM or ADMX files to the %windir%\PolicyDefinitions folder, those policy definitions are only available to that machine. Each machine that is going to make those changes would need those files as well.

You may also use a Central Store to centralize the location for domain-wide ADM and ADMX storage.

Refer to this article. It clearly states how to create and use the Central Store. This is in the sysvol area of your domain. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/...2147217396

For future reference, if you do much Group Policy work, this book has a ton of good info on Group Policy: http://www.amazon.com/Group-Polic...+moskowitz

I think he's also about to release a new version that will include Windows 10 settings.
