Group policy not available in Windows 2000 server

"Under Local Computer Policy, navigate to Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Messenger in whatever section you previously determined was appropriate. There will be two settings in the right window pane.

Do not allow Windows Messenger to be run.

Do not automatically start Windows messenger initially


This policy is not available from Windows 2000 server. Does anyone know where I can download these 2 settings as a *.adm file to import? I tried to import a system.adm file from a Win XP computer, but got a lot of errors...

What you are doing is correct but use a template from a WinXP SP1 machine.  If you use a XP SP2 adm you will get errors.

Thanx! Seems that it worked fine! Will test it tomorrow when I`m at work and give you the result, and accept the answer.

Hi
Try use this from a win xp sp1 workstation with .net framework on it - best way to admin group policy anyway and terribly useful It will run on a 2000 server based domain, so long as you run it on an xp client with an admin logon. You can then use the local sp1 or even sp2 based .adm files too,

This is how I`ve configured the policy:

I logged on to a Win XP computer and started the Windows Messenger without any problems. (Yes, I rebooted the computer).

How can this come?

Hi

Run the gpmc tool that I posted about  on your xp client - there's a resultant set of policy wizard, and it should give you more information about what could be wrong,
