I have installed Win 2003 and installed role of DC on it. There is another Server also Win 2003 installed along with ISA server.
When in AD Server I make change to group policy that prohibit access to control panel and make command for group policy refresh. I have observed that on client machines the Control Panel disappears, this is fine but what is going on is that in AD Server itself, On ISA Server computer the same condition is also applying, control panel also disappears from there, I don't want this, Please guide me for this. I want any conditions through group policy to be applied on windows XP machines only and not on servers.
Other question is, I need to basics of File and folder sharing and permissions, if any of you having good resource where I can study it. How to ensure that staff from one department should not see the shared folders of staff from other department. But employees from one department can share there information, such type of examples I want to implement in my environment, any good resource please?
Third question, in ISA how I can enforce authentication using information of WIindows Active Directory, example user A of AD can access website so and so, while user B from AD can not access those websites, similarly time restrictions based on information of active directory.
I will be waiting for your replies. I am new and willing to perform all this setup in my company.
