ADMX for "Windows Settings/Desired State Configuration"

    Question

  • Hi guys

    We are using a Policy Central Store for all ADMX- and ADML-Files. Now we have to configure the settings for "Desired State Configuration" in a new GPO for Windows Server 2016.

    Did anyone which ADMX-File must be changed to have the section "Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings / Desired State Configuration" available in a GPO?

    Best regards for all replies.

    Then copy the 2016 ADMX files to your central store.

  • Hi

    Thanks for your reply. But we have to know which one of all these files is responsible for the section "Desired State Configuration"?

    Thanks.

    Since ADMX/ADML is XML format, you can search the files with any solution of your choice. Even "find" or "findstr" will do the job.

  • Here is the latest (2017-01-03) reference spreadsheet. It lists all settings and each setting's corresponding template:

    No problem. I now see that the path you are referring to is also not the path to the administrative templates (admx-files), that path is "Computer Configuration / Policies / Administrative Templates", so if the setting you're asking for really exists in a GPO it's not in a template file. I don't have a 2016 server at the moment to check for other settings outside of the templates.
