Windows xp group policy not updating

Rated 3.91/5 based on 650 customer reviews

I have about 100 of these puppies to manage via GPO. After much testing and trial and error, I have learned the following: Sometimes, it is the case that a registry key that is normally created in HKCU can also be created in HKLM.

All examples that I found with google point to modifying the HKCU key for this key.

I have a script for Startup, Logon, Logoff, and Shutdown.

Currently these scripts access the SQL server and server file shares (logon and logoff only), read the local registry and run some commands via the wscript.shell object.

Create Key HKEY_CURRENT_USER, str Key Path o Registry.

Set DWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER,str Key Path,str Value Name,drtval drtval is 0 or 1 depending on whether I enable or disable the registry tools. The particular workstation I am testing this on is an XP Pro.

Local and domain policies (if a computer is in the Active Directory domain) can be applied to the computer and its users.

The Group Policies are an excellent means to configure a system and able to increase its performance and security.

But using this script in the Group Policy Shutdown script, it fails.

I have a set of four cscripts that I compile to exe with VBSEditor from Adersoft.

These compiled scripts run very well and are faster than running a script.

Create Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, str Key Path o Registry.

One of the main tools to configure user and system settings in Windows is the Group Policy Objects (GPO).
