This utility simplifies the creation of the “Central Store” for storing ADMX/ADML templates. Its a very simple utility.
Updated version 1.1 released!
In the domain name dialog, you enter the DN of the domain where you want to create the central store. This gets autopopulated if you run the tool from a computer already in a domain. Next, you press the “Check Central Store” button and the tool checks to see if the Central Store exists already. Ff not, you are prompted to create it. By default, the tool only looks in %windir%\policydefinitions on the machine where its running, as uses the contents found there to populate the central store. When you say ‘yes’ to creating the central store, all files found locally (including ADML files) are copied up to the newly created Central Store folder, which is by default, in \\\sysvol\\policies\policydefinitions. That’s all there is to it!
Requirements: You need the .Net Framework 2.0 installed on the machine where you run this utility from. The utility is meant to be run from Vista.
Version 1.1 (current): This is a new release that fixes a bug where the tool fails to find SYSVOL shares that have been relocated to a different volume than the default one.
Version 1.0 (original): This is the first release and can be found in the archives.
