Hi,

Does anybody now of the phenomana that when you log in with an NT4
domain account on a windows2003 member server the policy file no
longer works?
There is machine policy for the machine wich gives the remote path for
the policy file. But the W2K3 doesn't seem to do anything with the
policy file.
Is there maybe a registry key in wich i can force this behavior? It
works fine in Windows2000.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Henk Wieland

Already found the solution myself.
The keys you need to set manually to find the policy in the first
place, are;

Key : HKLM \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Control \Update
Entry : UpdateMode
System : NT, 2K
Type : REG_DWORD
Range : 0, 1 or 2
Default : 1
0 : Disables system policies.
1 : Loads system policies from the Netlogon share of the
authenticating server.
2 : Enables NetworkPath which contains the system policy file
location.

Key : HKLM \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Control \Update
Entry : NetworkPath
System : NT, 2K
Type : REG_SZ
Default : None
Path and file name of the system policy file for Poledit. This entry
is used only when UpdateMode is set to 2.
