GPO in windows 2003 and 2008 environment

Postby guest » Sat Oct 18, 2008 5:09 pm

you have some questions about
Windows Server 2008 terminal server. If I am off-base on that, please let
me know.

First of all, regarding your question about the lock down settings. Most of
these settings are GPO related and they applies to Windows Server 2008.

Regarding your second question, the policy appears on Windows Server 2008,
the policy node does not exist when you open policy console from a Windows
Server 2008 computer. Considering that you are using Windows Server 2003
DC, you can refer to the steps in the following article:

Regarding my second question, I think that you didn't understand me.
I have windows server 2008 as terminal server and I have windows server 2003
as domain controler. When i open Group policy editor on domain controler I
don't see policy setting that i put as an example in my original post.
Documents that you sent me are regarding locking down terminal server 2000
or 2003.
I hope that clarify my question,

The policy setting you mentioned only exist while opening GPO from a
Windows Server 2008 DC. Because you are in a Windows Server 2003 domain,
the policy does not exists.

The article I provided intends to lock down Windows 2000 and 2003 computer
and most of the settings applies on Windows Server 2008. If you wanna to
use the policy that you mentioned, I suggest that you introduce a windows
server 2008 DC in existing domain.

I think that answers my question. So even if I have Terminal Server 2008 and
Domain controller 2003, all new policies introduced in 2008 will not work in
my environment.
Can you just verify that this is correct.

- Yes, you are correct. The only way is to introduce a Windows Server 2008 to
upgrade the schema and import Windows 2008 version of Administrative
Template to use the new policies.
