Applying NT Policies

By aspiring_one ·
Can someone explain to me how I can change the default "save as" and "open" paths in NT 4.0 by using Policy Editor and how I make this apply to multiple domain users?

I'm not interested in changing this location by making adjustments in MicrosoftOffice. I want to set a policy for a specific directory be the default path for whatever type of file someone tries to open or save in any application.

Thanks.

This can be done through System Policy with the adm files for Office. The adm files are usually located in the Office Resource Kit. The specific setting that you are looking for is under Office, Common, Personal Folder. You have to save the policy with the name ntconfig.pol (config.pol for Win9X) and place it in the Replication directory on the PDC to ensure replication to other BDC if you have them. For multiple domains, place the ntconfig.pol file on all PDC in each individual domains. You might want to check MS Technet for "Guide to MS Windows NT 4.0 Profiles and Policies" it is a very good reading to get started.

Set your users' home directory path in User Manager for Domains. This type of purpose is what it is for. Alternately, you could script changing their environment variables, although it's really not necessary.
