Windows 2000 AD GP to restrict software installs
Posted on 2006-03-20
I am running a Windows 2000 AD in native mode with a mixture of Windows 2000 Pro and XP clients running SP4, SP1, and SP2 respectively. What I have at remote sites is 2000 file servers that are used for storage and backup, and in some cases used for mail and apps for production if the site has limited # of machines. What I would like to do at this point is restrict those 2000 file servers from having software installed on them through a gp, what's the best practices to go about doing this? I know of 3rd party apps, but we're looking to do this with what we currently have in place.
