File and printer group policy



Does anyone know a way of switching on "file and printer sharing for
Micosoft networks" for XP workstations in a 2000 AD using GPO?

50 % of the workstations do not have F&P sharing on and so are not browsable
in network neighbour hood.
Applications use network neighbourhood ie Landesk and Sophos enterprise

Hello Phill,

Here is the registry key you can push out via policy or logon script.


If you want to enable File and Print Sharing set the Start value to 2 (for
Automatic) and reboot.
