Windows 7 on a 2003R2 domain
We want to evaluate Windows 7 and work on it as much as possible before sending it out to clients. We have been told by the LEA that they will not allow .admx files on the network (cannot remember the reason).
I went to them with the information that AngryTechnician had on his blog here:
They denied my request.
Since then we have been given our own local Domain Controller. This pulls down the policies from the central LEA domain controllers so if the broadband network goes down pupils can still logon et etc.
I believe that policies around the network replicate across all DCs so any I create on the central Dcs will replicate to my DC here on the network (and vice versa).
Now - if I create an admx store on our DC is there any way I can stop that store replicating back up to the central DCs - thus allowing me to test locally with the new Windows 7 admx files but not affecting anything else.
