Preferred Solution: Group Policy Management Pack for Microsoft Operations Manager: Mar 8

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Microsoft® Operations Manager 2000 (MOM) Service Pack 1 (SP1) is a management system for monitoring computers in your organization. MOM SP1 has been tested, and it has been proven, based on many customers, that MOM SP1 scales to the published supported numbers. However, the limits for MOM SP1 can vary depending on many variables that are discussed in this paper. This paper describes the testing process used to recommend a suitable management server size with enough reserve capacity to smoothly manage a specific number of computers without putting the MOM SP1 computer systems at risk.

You can use the findings in this paper along with the MOM SP1 Management Server Sizer as a starting point to help you to determine the appropriate performance and sizing considerations for MOM SP1 in your environment.

Specifically, this paper answers questions such as:
How large must the management server be in terms of hardware resources?

How large is the overall footprint of MOM SP1?

How large should the MOM SP1 database be?

What are the system requirements needed to run MOM SP1 effectively?

What is the expected disk activity on the MOM SP1 database and database server?

What is the expected CPU usage of the MOM agent on a managed computer?

Right here is the situation: -

I have a Vista computer which I am testing on our network. Our network is made up of all Windows XP Pro machines and is run on a Windows Server 2003 environment.
For our XP machines, we have created a GPO on the domain for the windows firewall so that when the computer is logged on, the GPO is picked up and the firewall is automatically configured for our computers.
One feature of Vista is the advanced Windows firewall.
Also one feature of Vista is the fact that when you create a GPO in Vista, it uses .admx/.adml files instead of .adm files.
This means that the following steps need to be taken to be able to create Vista GPOs on our domain.


I have now populated the domain controller with these files and so these should now be picked up when i go to create a new GPO on the Vista machine.
But when I go to create a GPO on the Vista machine and I am connected to the domain, for some reason it is not picking up the .admx/.adml files that I copied to the Domain Controller.
So I am unable to configure the Advanced Firewall settings that come with Vista.
I have read that there are two versions of group policy management console, version 1 and version 2.
Apparently Vista comes installed with version 2 as it does not work with version 1. But suprise suprise, my buisiness edition came with version 1!!

Could that be where the problem is?

I have a Windows Server 2000 SP4, and 3 XP PRO machines.

I have manged to set up usernames etc in active directory, but when it comes to group policy, and deploying it on XP, where by i click on the domain controller in active directory users, and add a group policy.

Say in group policy, i wanted to set the Homepage for internet explorer as http://google.co.uk - for example, this wouldn't take effect on a Windows XP machine logged in as the domain member. It is as if the whole group policy feature doesn't work.

Hi all,
I received this message when i tried to look at the local group policy setting on one of my machines (Windows XP SP3), which is joined in my domain.
"Failed to open group policy object on this computer. You may not have appropriate rights.
Unspecified error."
note that I am local admin.
It's all started when I was troublshooting WSUS connectivity and i looked at the WinsdowsUpdate.log, the WSUS server was <Null> & WSUS status server <Null>, I tried to force the domain GP by using GPupdate /force, it went fine and asked to
log off, but nothing changed in the WindowsUpdate.log still <Null>. Then i tried to look at the local policy setting.
I searched the internet nothing related to my case.
Thanks in advance for advising.

I have enabled the following in group policy: Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication.
I have other settings in GPO enabled, so I'm 100% certain the clients are getting the policy ok.  However, this setting doesn't seem to affect my Windows 7 machines.  The scenerio is from the Win 7 machine, I'm connecting to a Sharepoint server
in another domain.  I'm prompted for credentials, which I enter domain\user, the password, and check the box to save my credentials.  I would expect with this GPO, even though I check the box that the credential would not be saved.  However,
it is being saved in Credential Manager on the Win 7 machine.  The next time any user goes to sign in using that machine (shared Point of Sale machine), the previous username is presented and the user must choose "use another account" to be able to enter
their password. 
From everything I have read, this is the GPO that is supposed to prevent the credentials from being saved, but I can't seem to make it work.

A:Group Policy to disable Credential Manager

Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.
Based on my test, I performed these steps:
1 Delete all credentials on Credential Manager
2 Go to GP editor, enable “Network access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication”.

3 Run “gpupdate /force” in command prompt
4 Then access share folder of network
5 Input username and password, do not choose “Remember my credentials”
Thus when you access network next time, the credential request will pop-up again to ask your username and password.
Furthermore, if you want to push PGO from the server, I suggest to ask Windows Server Forum for further help:
The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and

(Firstly sorry, but i did not found a category for the Microsoft Edge)

I'm working on the policy for Microsoft Edge(chromium based). This is my first time working with Group Policys. I set the recommended settings, which Microsoft "recommends".   Download id=55319 (i am not allowed to post links)
I also disabled the "Allow users to proceed from the HTTPS warning page". For me, that would be okey. But now, for IT-Internals, some Internal Managing Pages do not have a certificate (why not is another topic) and so they could not do there work.
Is it possible to "configure" an exclusion list? So that i could exclude like "*.mycompany.com" from this policy?
In my company it also be an need, that a startpage ist fixed, but it should be possible, to add other startpages additional, so it opens additional tabs with those websites. I couldn't found such settings.

Next, I configured a Default Search Provider. I would like to set it, but make it changeable. For that I have activated "Enable the defualt search provider" and set the settings into the other Policy "Default search provider*". But at the
browser, it is not changeable. Is that even "possible"?

I hope you could give me some adivces.

What is the best way to restrict the proxy settings in Microsoft Edge?I need the proxy settings greyed out and not allow users to edit the settings.

I know Edge uses IE11 proxy settings but Edge has a different menu view. I am able to block IE11 with the following registry entries in Group policy but doesnt seem to work correctly in edge.

Explorer\Control Panel]
"Proxy" dword:00000001

Also I created an Item level target with a security group to allow admins to update the proxy settings.

Thanks in advance!

can access Command Prompt,reg-edit, and task manager on a computer where its disabled with no admin rights. You can do this by copying the files for Cmd,regedit, and task manager, to a writable location. Then you can edit them with a binary editor to run regardless
of the policies set up. . The reason this works is because when Microsoft was coding Windows, , they decided they'd rather have it be more open than closed. When the command line starts, it checks a value in the registry to see if it can run. When you do this
your changing the registry location it looks in. Therefore it doesn't find the restriction in the registry. As a result, it allows execution. Once you've changed this one binary value, it will work on any school, work, or home computer that has it disabled.
Also on 64 bit versions of windows 7 and 8 you also need to copy the En-US folder from System32 and paste it in the folder with the binary edited CMD file. This is so it can load all the commands properly. I am not responsible for what you do. Have fun. The
unicode strings are CMD- disablecmd, Regedit- disableregistrytools. You can also use this method to access a disabled task manager. 
Note: When doing this put the files
into a place you can write to like a flash drive or the desktop, or else you won't be able to make the edits. You can do this all on a standard account. You don't need to be a Administrator.

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on a domain

I've NEVER seen this before and I cant figure it out.

I have a group policy set on an OU named LAPTOPS. The policy gets applied, however the User Config\Windows Setting\Scripts\Logon DOES NOT. When you run the GPRESULTS on the laptop, I see the policy settings being applied EXCEPT for the LOGON script. Its not there. I dont see any errors and cant figure out why Windows would ignore this one setting in the policy but apply the rest. I've tried deleting and recreating the policy but that does not work. Also made sure I did a GPUPDATE /FORCE

Walk to each computer and set the policies on each computer. If you are not in a domain environment you are basically have to set each one manually.

My only other thought is if all the computers are exactly the same make and model and you have some type of imaging software. You could make a standard install on one computer with all the settings you want and then use that computer to image all the other computers on your network.

When I try an open some of my files or programs I get a popup window that wants to know if I want the program to make changes to my hard drive I can't get one to come up at the moment to give more detail. Probably because I have click on most of them at first I clicked yes then I decided that was probably not a good idea. Either way programs still didn't open.

Is it possible to set administrators to one GP and standard users to another? I want to disable Command Prompt, Task Mgr and lockout all USB and CD drives for standard users but allow administrators to access all of those.

How do i set different group polices depending on user?

Thanks in advance

A:Set Group Policy different for each user group?

Yep. As long as the policies you want to deploy to those groups are per-user (i.e. within the user configuration section of GP Editor), then you can use a tool like Microsoft's GPMC to "security filter" the effects of a GPO to a particular user group. Or, you might want to check out Desktop Policy Manager--www.sdmsoftware.com/desktop_management, which provides a simplified web interface into Group Policy and makes targeting by group much simpler (full disclosure--I work for this company).

hi all - i get the following message after i untick the option to "prompt for password"
Power Policy Manager unable to set global policy
Access is denied.

i get the message after hitting okay to apply the change.
i was able to apply it without getting the message in the administrator account but not mine (limited acc.)
for a better explanation and more details as to what im trying to accomplish you see this thread here: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/969019-how-do-i-make-xp.html

( since this was about the error message i thought i should start separate thread)

A:Power Policy Manager unable to set global policy

Please stick with the original thread.


As I mentioned there, domain policy may prevent you from making those changes since you are on a work computer. We cannot assist you to bypass your company's security.

Hi there,

I have a network scenario which used to be solved with Go-Back, which would restore our 40 pc's in our school computer suite perfectly.

We would now like to build a clone and set some group policy lockdown and remove go-back, as its giving us problems. I have gone through and made most changes to the "adminstrative template" that would suit our scenario. When logging on as a test user this works perfectly. However these policys also affect administrators. Is this the way group policy works or is there a way to set the policys just for certain groups e.g 'domain users'.

Sorry no previous experience with group policy what so ever. I have mass reading for this evening but any tips in the mean time would be much appreciated.

Group Policy has been set on a laptop, that is not in a network. How can you turn this off so the single computer can control it's firewall again? I tried looking in the MMC but have been unable to locate group policy. I think that my dad let someone at his wifi company do a remote desktop on his computer, and they left the group policy turned on. Also, when you open IE it goes only to one web page theirs. I tried deleting the cookies, temp internet files, etc. All the computer repair company wants to do is dump the hard drive, leaving a 73 yr old to install all the software and hardware again.

Thank you

A:Group Policy

In order to access the Group Policy Editor, use "gpedit.msc" (without the quotes of course) from the "Run" window.

I'm not certain where in a Policy you will find what you are seeking, it's been a while since I've tinkered around in here. Just be careful as the system could get really locked down depending on what is changed.
