    Question Windows 7 group policy on server 2003 domain.

    Hi,

    I am beginning to put windows 7 machines on my server 2003 domain and would like to apply group policy to them. Here is what I have done so far:

    • Installed RSAT on a win7 machine for management
    • Copied the policy definitions to SYSVOL\domain\Policies\PolicyDefinitions
    • Configured a separate OU with inheritance blocking on that contains my win 7 machines


    As far as I can tell through research on the web that is all I need to do to apply group policy to windows 7 machines. After spending quite a while trawling through the many user and computer configurations via RSAT and setting things up I booted one of the machines to find very little of what I enabled taking effect.

    From what I have read it is not necessary to update the scheme via adprep unless you want stuff like bit locker working.

    Is this right? Am I missing a step? Is there a trick to getting it working?

    Any tips or info would be useful.

    Thanks

    What are you trying to copy to where?

    If you've installed the admin tools you should be able to view the group policy management tools, and create the GPOs through that.

    *Edit - Or could you upload screenshot from the GPO management tool, just shows it a bit better
