I need the AD Group Policy Examples

A while back I found "somewhere" a group of group policies that after you ran a batch file, they appeared in AD Group Policy at the root. I have since deleted the policies but need them again for some research.

If anyone remembers seeing this, or can find it themselves, please let me know right away.

What it did was create about 8 new policies that were examples of locking down Domain Controllers, Workstations, etc... The batch file that was included used a utility that somehow imported them directly into AD.

Any help is greatly appreciated

The file is called IntellimirrorScenarios.msi and can be found here:

This allows an administrator to automatically import 12 premade Group Policy examples into AD using a batch file.

These Group policies are samples of ways to implement Common Desktop Mnagement Scenarios.

I think it is a good idea for administrators to review this and install the files. The Group Policy Objects are not actually applied or linked to anything but are available GPOs. The batch process is a great example of how you can import GPOs from one Domain to another.

Shekerra, since you are the only one who answered, I'm going to just give you the points. You deserve them anyways :)

Introduction:
We are a high school with 2000 users, this summer we plan moving from NT4 to W2K Server.

Background:
I installed Microsoft's six scenarios as provided by Microsoft onto one of two workstations I have attached to a W2K testbench which include two new Dell Servers. I installed the .msi file onto a workstation - no problem. I then used loadpol.bat to install the six scenarios onto the domain controller. They copied across and reside in two SYSVOL folders along with some other policies I have already created. I clicked on each new scenario unique identifyer and the various folders/policies appear to be present.

Problem:
When I go into Active Directory and drill down and go to the ALL tab in Group Policy the new scenarios I have installed are not recognized. The original ones are there!
Any suggestions as to why I can't see them?

Many thanks for your help
