RPC security from XP SP2?

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Ondrej Sevecek, Oct 26, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    - is there a patch (even yet planned) which would deliver the security
    features for RPC communication presented in Windows XP

    - how to include the GPO settings concerning RPC from XP to my domain GPO

  2. Hello Ondrej,

    I'm not sure if there's a patch, but I'm pretty sure it'll be available
    with SP1
    It's ususally recommended that you edit the GPOs from the machine with
    the most up to date OS / Patchlevel. If you edit GPOs from a XP with
    SP2 installed the ADMs for the new extensions will be uploaded to the
    policy on the server.

    If you want to edit those GPOs from a WS2k3 you'll need to install the
    hotfix from the following KB on the server:

  3. I take it you refer to W2k3 SP1
    ditto if editing an XP SP2 updated GPO from W2k

    Hi Ulf,

    Hey, not a problem at all. After all, I can appreciate
    the techno-junkie mentality that has a hard time dealing
    with an OS that is already released, not to mention one
    that released to manufacturing half a decade ago (5 years
    ago W2k code froze mid-November '99). :)
