  • ConfigMgr. do no not require any GPO to work. However you can create and deploy GPO's that will overwrite some of the same settings as the ConfigMgr. site server, examples could be software udpates and remote tools.

  • Hello - AD is integral part of SCCM. Read the below article for details..

    But, your query about group policy is not clear. Explain in details....

  • What feature of ConfigMgr do you want to integrate with AD GPO's? the client installation, discovery, softwar edeployment?

  • thx, because I will upgrade NT4 to Windows 2003 using NT4Emulator (If upgrade to Win2003, all XP workstations will logon to the only one Win2003 only and the loading is too high, so need to use NT4 emulator. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779027(WS.10).aspx )

    From kb, Win2003 with NT4emulator just change clinet auth method, not change AD any information.

    Impact of the NT4Emulator and NeutralizeNT4Emulator keys on System and Group Policy Processing
    While the NT4Emulator setting is in effect Active Directory, aware customers will continue to use existing Windows NT 4.0 System Policies. These are .POL files that are typically stored in the NETLOGON share. Additionally, the customers will not process Active Directory-based Group Policies. It is important to ensure that NT 4.0 System Policies that are being used to manage Active Directory Group Policy aware operating systems have been migrated to appropriate Group Policies prior to the removal of the NT4Emulator key. In some cases, this occurred prior to the application of the NeutralizeNT4Emulator key. This is because NT 4.0 System Policies are no longer applied and Active Directory Group Policy processing is attempted as soon as these operating systems are allowed to detect a Windows 2000 or higher domain controller that is not emulating NT 4.0.
