Group Policy Settings Reference
Version 1.3 Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1
This spreadsheet lists the policy settings for computer and user configurations included in the Administrative Template (.adm) files delivered with
Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1. The policy settings included cover Windows Server 2003, Windows XP Professional,
and Windows 2000. These .adm files are used to expose policy settings when you edit Group Policy objects
(GPOs) in the Group Policy Object Editor (also known as GPEdit).
The Security Settings worksheet includes information about Account Policies (Password Policy, Account Lockout Policy, and Kerberos Policy), Local Policies (Audit Policy, User Rights Assignment, and Security Options), Event Log, Restricted Groups, System Services, Registry, and File System policy settings. Note: This does not include security settings that exist outside of the Security Settings extension (scecli.dll), such as Wireless Network extension, Public Key Policies, or Software Restrction Policies.
Each .adm file is represented by a single worksheet within this spreadsheet. In addition, a worksheet containing all policy settings, called All, is provided for ease
of reference. By using the ADM Parser utility (admx.msi, available from the Microsoft Web site), you can import
custom .adm files into the spreadsheet to reflect your specific environment. For more information, see the ADM Parser utility Help.
You can use the filtering capabilities included in this spreadsheet to view a specific subset of data based on one or a combination of
values available in one or more of the columns. In addition, you can select Custom in the drop-down list of any of the column
headings to add additional filtering criteria within that column. To view a specific subset of data, click the drop-down arrow in the
column heading cells that contain the value, or combination of values, on which you want to filter, and then click the desired value in the
drop-down list. For example, to view a subset of policy settings that are available through the Inetres.adm template and viewed under the
Computer Configuration node, in the All worksheet, click .adm File, click Inetres.adm, and then, in Computer/User Node, click MACHINE.
