Good afternoon,

We are in the process of trying to standardize the profiles on our Server 2008/R2 boxes.  We needed something that would work for existing and new servers, so default profile modification via sysprep is not an option.  So we went to group policy, but some options are not available that we need to customize.

We created an ADMX / ADML file set to modify a registry key, for example:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\TaskbarSmallIcons
dword:00000001

Now, our user objects do not, and can not live in the OU where this policy is applied.  So we enabled loopback processing in the policy, but this setting does not appear to be making it down to the machine.

Can ADMX templates be applied via loopback processing?

Thank you for any assistance.
