Doubts in Deploying Windows Firewall Settings to Domain Running Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003

Hi, everyone. I'm having a doubt here regarding to Windows Firewall settings deployment. By following the solution provided by Microsoft at, I'd successfully done the deployment on network domain, which running Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Server.

However after the deployment, everytime the GPO that storing new Windows Firewall settings is opened, there will be a lot of message prompts been displayed to indicate that certain string values is too long and will be truncated. Although the deployment is still working, but this is too frustrating for network admin. So anyone has any idea on preventing those message prompts been displayed? or at least only display once?

Note: For Windows Server 2003, this problem does not appear if SP1 is installed, probably is because of added Windows Firewall feature in SP1. But for Windows 2000 Server, I still can't figure out a solution yet.

Thanks a lot!
