SBS 2008 Redirected folders - disable offline files.

An answer to a related question said:
"Check here in this Group Policy


This is a Computer Configuration setting under Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files named "Allow of Disallow use of the Offline Files feature". Once the GPO applies, a reboot is required for the setting to take effect.
*****************************************
The section under Administrative Templacts has no Subfolder categories other than Office 2007 items.  How to add the Network settings?  What ADMX files?

Thank you.

I hope this helps,

Yes,  I had already downloaded them.  As I have no access to a Vista workstation as stated in the instructions, I extracted the files.  The ADMX files in these downloads are already in the Central Repository.  Which specfic ADMX file and associated english ADML files file should be replaced?

Thanks

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

OK, I was going to copy all the downloaded ADMX & ADML files to the c:\windows\policydefinitions folder to see if it would replace the missing areas.  Backup the policydefinitions folder.  Attempt to copy the ADMX files and the EN-US folder.  This gives "Destinatin Folder Access Denied"  "You need permission to perform this action".  It does not matter how many "Try Again" buttons are pushed, the files never copy.  Check security permissions - Domain Administrator has none and the option to grant them is not available.

What is next?

I know it is not the correct method...Took ownership of the directory and granted permissions.  Copied ADMX files and EN-US folder for no change.  The only administrative templates listed under Computer Configuration, Policies, Administrative are Office 2007 related.  

At a loss...and still have a Texas State monitored security issue to answer due to the offline files.

Finally got it... C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions is not the central storage location;  C:\Windows\sysvol\sysvol\domain.local\Policies\PolicyDefinitions is the central storage.  Once I copied the ADMX files and the EN-US folder here, the suggestion contained in the original question - " Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files named "Allow of Disallow use of the Offline Files feature" - became available.
