system policy with 98 and NT

By IT Support Services Manager ·
I am new to using system policies. I have a network with two NT servers and 85 windows 98 workstations. So far I have installed the Windows 98 system policy editor on my computer and made a policy with the usual default computer and default user.I added one user as a test. I changed the wallpaper and removed the rights to enter MSDOS in the test policy. I saved the policy as config.pol and installed it on the domain server in the
wnnt/system43/repl/import/scripts and the export scripts folders. The user is not picking up the changes in the policy. What step or steps have I left out? I would appreciate any advice

I believe that the system policy has to be stored within the user's profile as a mandatory roaming profile rather than being saved where you would put login scripts.

Microsoft has published a white paper on this topic and it can be found at:

hope this helps...

You have to make sure that users are logging in to NT domain.Than run Poledit, open Local Registry, Update and make sure that Renote Update is checked and update mode is Automatic. You might also have to delete cached profiles under C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\

Are you sure that you are a) Using Windows 98 Policy Editor b) Saving into the Netlogon share winnt\system32\repl\import\scripts. I would particularly check b) as the share is usually Read only.
It is good practice to use a test user a policies aretricky to begin with. Finally thought the policy has to be called EXACTLY Config.pol. Many people call them testuser.pol that would be WRONG.
