Hi mti-support,

There unfortunately doesn't seem to be an equivalent Server 2008 equivalent for that article - but the Group Policy settings are still there and can be set.

You'd simply need to adapt the article such that you set the policies through the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Group Policy Management tool, and that you ensure you browse down through Administrative Templates > Policies > (then the appropriate policy).

All the Server 2003 policies are still present and will still apply to a 2008 machine, so there will be no harm in following  a version of that article written for a legacy OS.

No repsonses? I gave a perfectly adequate response which stated the article pretty much applies to 2008 with one minor adjustment.
