The policy file is ntconfig.pol and it is in the NETLOGON share (winnt/system32/repl/import/scripts) of each domain controller.  If you replicate change it in the repl/export/scripts directory on your PDC.  The .adm files for poledit are in the winnt/inf directory by default but I think you are just looking for the policy file.

They are in the winnt/inf directory by default but are also found in the resouce kit.  Just do a find for *.adm and you should have no problem locating them.

They would be on your server not on your workstation (unless you added the policy editor and the .adm files to your workstation).

Yes, it is!
I wonder why Microsoft hides it so hard?
