Hi,
  I am currently attempting to deploy a wireless setting through GPO. I have some issues which I need help with.

My Domain has a mix of Windows 2k3 R2 and 1 Windows 2k8 R2 server. Creating a new profile for XP does not seem to be an issue. But the problem is that when I try to create a profile for windows 7, the Windows 2k3 DC's are not able to read the setings from the 2k8 DC (since only this machine has the option of using WPA2).

My PDC is a windows 2003 machine. The profile gets corrupted when I try to add a win 7 wireless setting.

What can I do to work around this?

Thanks
Lance.

You need to use the Group Policy Management Cinsole on a Windows 7 or Windows 2008 machine to be able to pickup the new settings.

"My PDC is a windows 2003 machine."  

There is no such thing as a PDC!! Hasn't been for about 11 years! a PDC Was a Windows NT Primary Domain Controller.

Microsoft Windows Active Directory Services treats ALL DC's as equal. There are just roles you can move around or deploy or not deploy.

Thanks for the clarification Neil. You are right in saying that the PDC is a role and not an actual server :-)

demazter, I was able to get it up and running. Turns out I used the same name for both profiles which cause the error. Changed the names and it works just great.

Resolved by changing profile names.
