Central Store Question

    Question

  • Hi,

    I was trying to create a central store \\FQDN\sysvol\fqdn\policies\PolicyDefinition.

    I copied all the files from c:\windows\policydefinition and also added the ADMX files from windows 10 Group polic ADMX files with the language files.

    When i open the GPMC is still refering to the Local Store and not the central store.

    How can i make the GPMC to start pointing to the new central store.

    Thanks,

    JW

  • Hi Jack,
     
    The root folder of the Central Store should be "PolicyDefinitions", not "PolicyDefinition". Please correct it, then verify again.
     
    >>Also, is there any specific permission that needs to be given to the central store ?
     
    No, no specific permission needs to be assigned. The folder was created in your SYSVOL, which is by default a shared directory for common access and replication throughout a domain.
