Default domain policy


P

pdk

The default domain policy sets security settings on the
sysvol directory on a given DC, however this triggers
staging files to grow excessivly as it alters ACL
information.
If you alter the Default Domain Policy not to replace any
security setting on the sysvol directory + subfolders
everything runs smootly and FRSDiag stops reporting errors.

1. Are these settings intended by Microsoft in this case
why ??
2. Why does the Default Domain Policy specify the path
c:\winnt\*** insted of %systemroot%??

None of the default policies specify any permission settings.

In the Default Domain Policy the only things defined by default are the
password policies.
In the Default Domain Controllers policy the only things defined by default
are UserRights and a couple of Security Options.

Any other settings would have been added to the policies after the fact
manually (accidentally) or by importing a security template.

So if you don't need them then they can be removed from the policy.

Is it possible that this alteration came with SMS
implemented by my college, we run Advanced clients.

I don't believe that SMS puts any policy settings in place, so I would say
not likely. I am not that familiar with it so I cannot say with 100%
certainty.

Thanks for your help

I have read the mentioned articles before this and found
some help. But it puzzles me how these settings has been
made.
Do you know about some documents / books that describes
the default settings for the security templates.

It is puzzling how those settings were made.

I don't know of any books but there is an article that gives the default
gpttmpl.inf file for the Default Domain Policy.
