Group policies on NT2000 server - configured as workgroup not domain
Posted on 2004-08-11
I have a windows NT2000 server with 9 thinclient users logging in to terminal services. (also several mixed desktop pc's using the server for file sharing). I do not have domain configured - just workgroup. I need to drastically restrict the access of 6 users who log on to thin clients). I have been able to manipulate the policy but it applies to all users logging on to thin clients or console. As I do not have active directory I cannot use OU's. I have tried altering the sharing on the folder winnt\system32\group policy and sub folders to prevent those users from accessing the policy files but this seems to have no effect. (c drive is formated fat32).
Can I use group policy in this setup ?
Can I move group policy folder to D: (NTFS ) and try ntfs permissions. ?
Can I convert C drive to NTFS ?
Can I convert to domain easily ?
