Windows 7 clients on Server 2003 domain....
Am looking at doing some testing:
I've read this:
Windows Server 2003 can host a Central Store as easily as Server 2008.
To create a Central Store simply create a PolicyDefinitions folder in the SYSVOL with a path of %WINDIR%\SYSVOL\domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions.
Copy the ADMX templates from a Windows 7 computer into the SYSVOL location.
Window 7 keeps a copy of the ADMX and ADML files in its own PolicyDefinitions folder located in the Windows folder.
Once it is placed in the Central Store, the File Replication Service on Server 2003 will replicate the PolicyDefinitions folder to all Domain Controllers in the Domain so that the templates are available for use by the editing tools.
An ADMX/ADML Central Store requires much less space on the SYSVOL than ADM files and will reduce replication costs
But I've read something else about requiring Windows 7 RSAT
I hope it all starts to make sense as I proceed.
Any tips greatly appreciated....
