System Policies

By brifd1 ·
I'm on a Novell network with Windows 98SE. Whenever I start up the PC, I get a prompt that states that "system policies" are being loaded. What do "system policies" consist of/what do they do?

What the admin has most likely done is using ZENWorks for Desktop (the free Starter Pack or full version). This applies the Windows policy, as stored in eDirectory; the machine part upon startup of the PC and the user part after logon.
For the exact contents of the policies, look in the Windows docs (CONFIG.POL or something like that...).

No doubt you also have a windows domain or workgroup and policies are loaded from that. Or perhaps if this is not the case then they are just your Windows 98 policies. The Microsoft OS is gungho on policies. Nothing to worry about.

Your network administrator is enforcing his policies on the computers connected and these policies are uploaded/downloaded to your PC everytime you log in. System policies could refer to the user's ability or inability to change/tweak systems settings on your PC and most of them are the applets in the Control Panel. These are direct registry settings on your PC through Zenworks.
Hope this enlightens you a bit...
