Hello,
I've been asked to add a new internet explorer proxy exception on an NT4 domain using group policy editor. I know where to add the exception once i have the policy editor open but my question is this. There is no documentaion for this domain. How do I assertain which policy file is being used (there are 3 within the netlogon share). And, there are 8 .ADM templates, is there anyway I can tell which ones are loaded?  Is anyone able to give a brief description as to what these ADM files are without pointing me to a web site :)  Thanks very much.

The default is NTConfig.pol. This can be changed through the registry, though (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Update, "NetworkPath" and "UpdateMode" set to 2).

Unfortunately, there is no way to determine which template files were loaded into poledit when the policy was created; the template list is stored with poledit, not with the policy file (yes, it's a pain). If in doubt, load all.
