    Hi All,

    Is Windows 7 compatible with Active Directory from Server 2003? Are there
    new .adm template files ?

    I'm trying to work out, if upgrading to 2008 is a requirement in order to
    support Windows 7 clients.

    Hi Meinolf,

    Could've sworn I replied to this but I am having NNTP problems...

    This question is about Assigning GPO - TO - windows 7 clients, not
    admin a server from Windows 7. So in the same way as I assign policies
    out to XP clients.

    I know in Vista that .admx files came into play, but never really
    understood them or what you had to copy and where..

  4. Hello Adrian,

    You can configure GPOs for 2008 or vista/windows 7 from a windows 7 workstation
    with RSAT installed. Then open Control Panel, Programs and features, Turn
    windows features on or off, check the tools you like under "Remote Server
    Administration Tools"

    Best regards

    Dude... Can you read English...
    We are all looking for an answer to the age old question of... ARE THERE ADM

    Seriously... Stop with the Windows 7 Remote Desktop Crap... Don't Care...

  6. Dude, why the attitude??

    If you understood the reponse, Meinolf's saying that to gain benefits of the
    GPOs settings for Windows 7, you have to create and administer the GPOs from
    a 2008 or Windows 7 machine, NOT from a 2003 machine. Period.

    Age old question? Sounds like a preamie because the thing hasn't been
    officially released yet to the public?

    We are here trying to help others, and sometimes it's difficult when
    responding with a solution that the original poster doesn't understand.

  7. Adrian,

    I mentioned 'original poster' in my response to Steve's childish response to
    Meinolf. After I sent it and looked at the thread, I noticed Steve wasn't
    the original poster. So I didn't mean you in that case, rather I meant that
    for Steve. Sorry for any misconception!
