MS edge ADMX import

    Question

  • Hey Everyone,

    Currently we have two DC one running server 2003 and the other server 2008 our clients running windows 7.

    Recently we purchased two laptop they came with windows 10 we would like to use windows but cant any policy changes to MS edge.

    I believe I can import the ms edge ADMX file into my DC and then apply the policy changes.

    Since we are still running server 2003 can I still import the ADMX file and where do I place it.

    ADM file were imported under 

    C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\mydomain.com\Policies

    where do I place the ADMX file ?

    Thanks in Advance.

    No, the root folder of the Central Store should be in your sysvol share, the path is:
     
    %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions
     
    “C:\windows\PolicyDefinitions” is the local copy of existing .ADMX template files. If you don't have a Central Store, then GPMC will by default read .ADMX files from "C:\windows\PolicyDefinitions", so copying Edge .ADMX files into C:\windows\PolicyDefinitions should also work for you.

  • Hi,
     
    .ADMX file was introduced in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. So you need to be using a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer in order for the Group Policy Object Editor to recognize the ADMX files.
     
    For your case, I would suggest you created a "Central Store" in your sysvol folder for the .ADMX files, and then use the Group Policy Object Editor tool from the Windows Server 2008 DC to manage them.
     
    The Group Policy tools will continue to recognize other earlier ADM files you have in your existing environment. For more details about "Central Store" and how to manage .ADMX files, you can refer to this article:

    Hope this helps.

  • Hey Ethan,

    I copied the ADMX file under C:\windows\PolicyDefinitions on my server 2008 DC after that I created a group policy and linked it to my test OU where my  windows 10 client is placed but for some reason it doesn't work ?

  • Hi,
     
    More details if needed.
     
    For better tracking purpose, I would suggest we start a new thread, share more details on how exactly you configured it, and what exact policy setting you configured. Then we will take a further look at it.
     
    Thanks for your understanding.
