global policies vs local policies

By ZalTech ·
I have come to work on a network that is a hybrid Netware(4.X,5.X,6.X) and MS (NT4, Win2000, Win2003) of about 400 servers and 6000 Workstations that are probably 95% Win2K.

Currently all user environment control and conformity is done not using any global polices, but using local system polices and massively tweaking the workstation image with regards to restricting access to local system folders and the registry.

Both Zen and AD are implemented on this network, but not effectively used. I am trying to persuade the powers that be that global policies are the way to go especially since we are moving to a role based security and data access model.

I have never seen this type of a security implementation before, bottom up as opposed to top down, and have concerns about the future viability of such a model.

Does anyone else implement the desktop in this way? If so how do you effectively manage it when you can't really push any changes on a system wide scale without sending a bunch of techs around to do them?
