group policy
Group Policy
  • Prior to Windows Vista/Server 2008 we used .adm files in group policy
    • Proprietary file format
    • Requires that administrators have a local copy of all .adm files
    • Requires copying of the adm file to specific group policy object sysvol\domain\policies\<GUID> directories
    • About 2MB in size, causes lots of replications issues. (2MB * 1000 files = 2GB of network traffic)
admx and adml
.admx and .adml
  • Newer group policy object files based on xml and supports language specific variants (.adml)
  • Supported natively by Windows Vista and later operating systems
  • Smaller foot print than previous .adm files
group policy integration
Group Policy Integration
  • Local Store
    • %systemroot%\policyDefinitions
  • Central Store
    • %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions
  • Both work with Group Policy Editor on Windows Vista and later
benefits
Benefits
  • Advantages of using ADMX Central Store:
    • Once an admx file is added to the central store, it is available to all group policy administrators
    • Reduces the amount of replication across the domain controllers
    • .admx and .adml files are about 1/10th the size of .adm files
    • Central store is only copied once
limitations
Limitations
  • Only Windows Vista and later operating systems versions of group policy administrative console support admx and admlfiles
  • Administrators cannot use a Windows XP or prior operating system to administer group policy, including Windows Server 2003 R2 and earlier server versions
  • Will break custom modifications directly made to the following files
    • System.adm
    • Inetres.adm
    • Wmplayer.adm
    • Wuau.adm
  • .admx and .adml files for Windows 7 and 2008 R2 are not necessarily compatible with group policy editor for Vista and 2008.
  • .admx and .adml files must be located either centrally or locally to apply correctly
