Hi Guys,

Today I ran RSOP.MSC in couple computers and found that all of them have adminstrative templates being showed in language other than English. We have an office in Hong-Kong but all Windows computers are English Based and all Windows Administration is made from our office in Americas. Thus everything is in english.

If I open the GPO itself, all policies are in english.

Please see the image below RSOP.MSC
Can you help me on this issue?

Tks!

Administrative Templates can be also created in separate file by administrators. When you import that template (ADM file) and someone put there chinese words, then you will always see them in GPMC/GPEdit console.

ADM templates can be implemented in any other language, everything depends what language strings you put within template :)

You can test that by identifying GPO's GUID and go to

\\domain.local\SYSVOL\domain.local\Policies

go to GUID folder (the same as your identified GPO)

press F3 (search) key and search for *.ADM files

Review those found files in a notepad or better in Word (to see different characters) and look for any "different" strings not being English or Spanish :)

Is it safe to delete *.ADM from \\domain.local\SYSVOL\domain.local\Policies

Nope. Edit particular GPO and select Administrative Template and choose "Add/Remove Administrative Template..." and remove ADM from that place

Actually the problem was related to a specific GPO. After removing it from the domain, the ADM templates at the user's computers came back to normality
