GPO Help assistance required

Hello Experts,

Can anyone please send me all steps required to create a new GPO in a WIndows 2003 forest/domain to  allow/enable  802.1x Authentication for Wired Laptops?

Windows 7 is the standard OS for all clients

Please see attached files for reference. I was able to connect my own computer by checking those boxes

Thanks for that wonderful link that I could not find in google, but I was more interested in the GPO steps to enable on computers

Anyone else please?

Screenshots with all steps are really appreciated

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

is this function also possible for wired connections? imagine that the wireless accespoint is a layer 2/3 switch configured to use RADIUS and all ports are 802.1x enabled. because i would like to authenticate computers to my network. the only thing i got working is by user credentials and user certificates. with this HOWTO it works just like i want it to work... only using wired network authentication instead of wireless

Hello Everyone,

From another MS blog, I read that in order to enable  802.1x Authentication for Wired Laptops in a Windows 2003 forest/domain we must extend the schema either to 2008 or 2012 by deploying a new domain controller.

Can you please validate if is a must to have a Windows 2008 as minimum to deploy the new GP above?
