Configuring Virtual Memory Settings via GPO

Hi,

Is it possible to configure Windows XP virtual memory settings to 'system managed' page file size using Group Policy?

Thanks,

Mike

I dont think there is a GPO for it, but here is  areg command that will do it. Can easily deploy it in a login script, or PSEXEC?

Guess the reg command might be helpful....

reg add "hklm\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v pagingfiles /t reg_multi_sz /d "C:\pagefile.sys 0 0" /f

How does the reg command work?

From a command prompt.....if you have a listing of PCNames, you could use PSEXEC as well...

Are you famiiliar with that?

Just a note to anyone who views this: According to the document http://www.frickelsoft.net/blog/downloads/howto_admTemplates.pdf creating a custom ADM file won't work in this case as the registry key containing the Paging File settings is a REG_MULTI_SZ which (along with REG_BINARY) can't actually be modfied by group policy. (I just tried) For any registry key which is not one of these two types creating a custom ADM should work fine however.
