    Windows 7.0 & GPO....new policy from scratch or customise old?

    Hi all,

    I'm having fun and games (not so much fun!) preparing for Windows 7.0.

    I'd been curious to know from people who have implemented if they made new GP's or just tinkered with their old ones?

    Any replies would be much appreciated.

    Gary

    If you have already deployed Vista then just update those policies. If you are comming from XP there is so much more in them that it is better to start from scratch as otherwise you can end up with crazy defaults.

    If you have some XP machines remaining then use a WMI filter on the user GPO policies to filter out just the XP and Just the 7 ones so that it all works together smoothly - a seporate user policy for 7 /Vista and XP.

    Thanks very much for your suggestion...i'll start from scatch and use the filter.

    I've just ordered a copy of 2008 R2 as having trouble with desktop redirection, even on a fresh policy. As 2008 R2 is designed for Windows 7.0 i'm hoping this will sort it as just can't understand why it's not working easily on 2008 standard.

    Thanks again.
