Windows 7 group policy on server 2003 domain.
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.
