    Hi

    If you have used a Windows XP SP2 computer to administer the Group
    Policy settings in the domain, the adm files should automatically
    have been updated.

    See here on how Jeff updated the Default Domain Policy templates when
    they would not do it automatically:

    You can also download the latest .adm files from here:

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=31057

    If you install the WinXP SP2 .adm files on the domain controller, but
    you don't use WinXP SP2 to edit the GPO settings, you may you get the
    message below, install the hotfix that is available in the KB article
    in the link below to solve this.

    "The following entry in the [strings] section is too long and has
    been truncated" error message when you try to modify or to view GPOs
    in Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Professional, or Windows 2000

    Hi

    Sorry for the first post, it was meant for another poster.

    I'll try again:

    Searching for "dcom" in the file PolicySettings.xls (under
    the System.adm tab) available at
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=ef3a35c0-19b9-4acc-b5be-9b7dab13108e&displaylang=en
    comes up with several new SP2 policies that migt apply to you.

    Also, or a complete list of Group Policy options for the WinXP SP2,

    Windows XP with Service Pack 2":
