Active Directory, Coexsistance of .adm and .admx based policies
Posted on 2012-03-27
We have just added our first Windows 2008 R2 server to our existing 2003 domain and all is working correctly. We have existing policies based around the old adm technologies, these policies are applied to windows XP, vista and 7 machines.
We want to add the new admx files to the domain, I am perfectly happy doing this, but my question is about coexistence of adm and admx based policies.
Will the settings that I have in the adm (2003) based policies still be applied to the clients? What I don't want to happen is I put the new policies in place and they then stop the application of the existing policies, I will then migrate the old policies to the new policies overtime as they could do with a clearout as there are some odd settings that were done years ago are probably a hinderance now.
