Cant remove registry changes made with ADM
Posted on 2009-07-01
I was directed to create a new registry key via group policy. I made the adm file and added that to a new GPO. Then I was told the path to it was wrong and it should be placed in another existing path.
The problem arises when I change the ADM file and try to replace the changes I made previously. I go into the GPO remove the template, then add the revised template.
Running gpupdate on the test machine reveals my new setting takes effect, but the old path that is bad is there too. I delete the key and do a gpupdate and it comes back. I checked the SYSVOL folder for that GPO and find the ADM template in it; its only the corrected version. The only way I found to correct the problem is to delete the whole GPO and recreate it.
Where does it get the information to keep making the bad registy key? How do I get it to purge that setting?
