Locked

System policies in a NT/Win98 network "S

By fb400 ·
I'm trying to lock down Win98 workstations in an NT 4.0 network. Having problems with System policies not always doing what they are supposed to do. The "Start Menu" is giving me problems. Can't seem to get Policies to Hide "Favorites" in "Start Menu & Hide "Documents" in "Start Menu" also Hide "Folder Options" from the "Settings"-
Hide "Active Desktop" in "Settings"-Hide "Windows Update" in "Settings"./ Everything else seems to work ok, these are the only settings that don't seem to work correctly, they seem to leave all/some options? Thanks, Brian

make sure you're using the right template. The wrong template can cause problems with the registry. In your case you need to use
"COMMON.ADM & WINNT.ADM"
There is only one book on policies. I highly recommend it. I had the same problems you were having. There was no books on policies. It's called "WINDOWS SYSTEM POLICIES by WILKINS"... Also, download the whitepaper on NT policies on www.microsoft.com/technet

Wrong, Common & Winnt are the policies for NT Workstations. Look on the Win98 CD for the correct Policy templates. They also must be on the right place on the server NETLOGON Share, as CONFIG.POL for 98.
Okay next 2 issue's first when I had 98 machines I found a number needed to have to Group Policies installed Add/Remove - Windows Setup - System Tools(?), otherwise add from the 98 CD same dir as you found Poledit in. there's an INF file.
Finally there are issue's with groups versus individuals, one overrides the other, and remember - checked -> enforced, blank -> Not enforced, Grayed leave as is. Sorry I don't remember the groups versus individal issue's but if you read up on Policies it is apparent. I'd check that Group Policies areinstalled on the machines that are NOT behaving.
