Configuring Remote Assistance using AD

By greg.gotcher ·
Below are instructions I found to setup Remote Assistance using the Group Policy on Local PC. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do this using Acitve Directory?

Instructions:
Start the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Group Policy snap-in: Click Start, click Run, and then in the Open box, type: gpedit.msc. Then, click OK.

Note: In a Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory domain you can easily accomplish the same task by creating and linking a GPO to the entire domain or OU in which the computers are located.

Locate the Offer Remote Assistance policy in the Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Remote Assistance folder.

Double-click Offer Remote Assistance.

On the Offer Remote Assistance Properties dialog box, click Enable.

well the second paragraph tells you the answer to your question.

your second paragraph: "Note: In a Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory domain you can easily accomplish the same task by creating and linking a GPO to the entire domain or OU in which the computers are located."

The problem that I am having is that when I go into the group policy using Active Directory Users and Computers, I don't have the Offer Remote Assistance policy in the Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Remote Assistance folder. The Remote Assistance is not there. How would I go about doing this?

Are you sure you are looking in the right place?

It's not the local computer policy you should be looking at ...

Go to the properties of the OU that you wish to apply the settings to

Edit the GPO and just go to
Computer Configuration\
Administrative Templates\
System\
Remote Assistance folder

You need to have Windows XP professional or Windows 2003 server to apply the setting to

I am running my Domain Controller on Windows 2000. Does this mean that I will not be able to modify this setting using Active Directory? Do I need to upgrade my Domain Controller to Windows 2003 to see that choice?
