Hi All

We have a windows 2003 native domain, I'm soon to start looking at introducing WIndows 7 machines, is there any updates i have to apply to manage them with Group policy or any other hints / tips.

Thanks

Nope, you will only have available policies as for XP. You won't be able managing new Windows 7 features via GPO in 2003.

Thanks Isiek

Will policies like managing the Firewall, disabling offline files / Restricted groups etc still work with Windows 7 Pc's, is it just the new enhanced features of Windows 7 that will not be managable

Thanks

You're welcome :)

Everything except Firewall will work from your list :) W7 has completely new firewall client solution. It has 3 default profiles public/private/domain and it cannot be managed by W2K3 GPOs (unfortunately)
