    I want to create a GPO to lockdown Office across our domain. I do not want to
    install office resource kit on domain controller. Can I copy just the adm
    templates onto the DC so I can add the office templates into my GPO? If so,
    should I copy the files to c:\windows\inf or the sysvol directory? Thank You

  2. Yep. Your steps would be to download the office resource kit and open the
    executable in Winzip (or favorite archive program). You can pluck out the
    *.adm files and copy to the \windows\inf folder on any server/workstation
    responsible for policy object management.

    neo - I have 10 domain controllers. Will it be necessary to keep copies of
    these adm files on each DC in the windows/inf directories? Thanks

  4. nope. i have a single domain member (workstation) that i manage gpos from
    and the only side effect i notice when going to a machine that doesn't have
    the adm files and reviewing the policy object is you might see a section
    labeled registry settings and/or a reference that a machine might be missing
    the adm file to properly display the settings.

    The light just went on. Once the adm's are added to the gpo they are no
    longer needed as they are written into the new gpo which is then replicated
    across the domain. If I got it right, I want to thank you both for your help.
