Can I manage the configurations of the various services running on my Windows machines through Group Policy?
Again, this is easily done through Group Policy Preferences. Go to Computer Configuration | Preferences | Control Panel Settings | and click the Services icon. You can then modify the settings for any service that is currently running on the machine you are creating the GPO from. For this reason, it is essential to use a machine that represents the targeted machines for the GPO.
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
