client settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Under client settings there is the default client settings.  It has a priority of 1000.   I created a custom policy and it was given a priority of 1.  
       
    Which one runs first?
    Which one has more rights or runs last and therefore gets applied?
    How do you use your custom policy and not use the default?  (there is no delete on the default)
    How do you reset the default polity to the factor defaults?

  • 1. Policies are updated/applied with macine policy 60 min by default

    2. The policy with the lowest priority wil be applied (Your custom one in this case)

    3. You need to right click and deploy your custom policy to a collection of machiens for that policy to be applied.

    4. You can't reset default this is why you should always create custom policies

  • Hi mqh7,

    Here's a link to the documentation for configuring client settings:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682109.aspx

    Bottom line is that any custom client settings you create and deploy (this is how you use the custom policy) will take precedence over the default policy. I'm not exactly sure how to reset the default settings back to factory though, hopefully someone else can chime in on that.


    EDIT: Never mind on resetting default policy back to factory, see Justin's post above.
