Windows 2008 Clients on 2003 Server - Group Policy Issues
Posted on 2008-10-24
We are currently developing our new Vista Desktop build which is going to be sat on a Windows 2003 server domain. I have everything working nicely apart from the new Group Policy Preferences.
I am managing group policy from the Vista Workstation, and I have installed the client side extensions on the 2003 server (R2,Enterprise,SP2) but I am finding that when I specify, for example, to place an icon on the desktop for users (User Config, Preferences,Shortcuts,Notepad Shortcut) that it is not doing this. But if I join my Vista workstation to a 2008 server then it works perfectly.
Is there something that I have missed?
