Group Policy Setting

Hi All,

I am having an issue with creating some settings on a new GPO within Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.

I have an existing poicy that i am using as a base for the settings i need to apply, however, when i try to set one partifular setting, it does not apply nor show up in the summary of settings in that GPO.  The settings are available and applied successfully from the existing template.

When i enter the value and click Ok, i dont get an error message so i assume it is working fine.  When i check, the setting is not there and when i open the setting to try another entry, my previous entry is not in there.  I have also found that i am unable to change it from Enabled to Disabled or Not Configured.

Finally, these settings also show a different icon to the others.  Can this be preventing me from successfully applying the settings?  (see attachment)

I hope someone can assist me.  

Regards,

Hi, That looks like a custom administrative template - are you able to share that, or where it came from, to see if there are any issues with it?

Regards,
Alastair.

Thanks for your reply.

All of the templates are from the Central store.  I can import .adm files and not .admx.
Would there be any reason that .admx files arent able to be viewed when trying to add them?  I can see them in the store though.
