Group Policy setting different after changing from Local file to Central Store

    Question

  • Hello,

    we have created a Central Store and added the latest Windows Server 2012 R2 Update and Windows 8.1 Update .admx/l files from Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 8.1 Update and Windows Server 2012 R2 Update.

    When opening and checking a GPO setting we could see, that with the before used local .admx files from Windows Server 2008 R2, the setting is set to "Enabled".

    When using the Central Store with the new OS version .admx files we see now that the exact same setting according to the GPO path is set to "Not configured":

    Is that maybe because the new .admx file has another registry key below this setting and we have to reconfigure it?

    I know that this specific GPO setting is already mentioned as not usable in Group Policy to disable DFSS is not functional and it has to be set manual within the registry.

    Removing the Central Store and using the local .admx files will bring back the "Enabled" GPO setting as before.

    Which exact setting?

    That's the only reason I'm aware of - but the registry values are
    supposed to be the same for a setting across all ADM(X) file versions?!?

    -> Terminalserver-Server.admx
     
    Server 2008R2:
        <policy name="TS_ENABLE_DFSS" class="Machine"
    displayName="$(string.TS_ENABLE_DFSS)"
    explainText="$(string.TS_ENABLE_DFSS_EXPLAIN)"
    key="SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\SessionManager\DFSS"
    valueName="EnableDFSS">
     
    Server 2012R2:
        <policy name="TS_ENABLE_DFSS" class="Machine"
    displayName="$(string.TS_ENABLE_DFSS)"
    explainText="$(string.TS_ENABLE_DFSS_EXPLAIN)"
    key="SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Session Manager\Quota System"
    valueName="EnableCpuQuota">
     
    So indeed, the key and value for this setting changed from 2008 to 2012.
    Why? MSFT knows :)
