JSI Tip 8866. GPMC in Windows XP SP2 displays some Group Policy settings in Extra Registry Settings?

The Group Policy Management Console cannot correctly enumerate some settings in the SP2 version 5 .ADM files, and displays these settings in the Extra Registry Settings section.

NOTE: This behavior is limited to how the information is displayed, and DOES NOT affect Group Policy functionality.

The following GPOs exhibit this behavior, but others may also:

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Windows Firewall\Profile\Windows Firewall:Define Program exceptions

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Windows Firewall\Profile\Windows Firewall: Define Port Exceptions

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files\Administratively assigned offline files

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files\Prohibit ‘Make Available Offline’ for these files and folders

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Distributed COM\Application Compatibility Settings\Define Activation Security Check exemptions


User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Windows Firewall\Profile\Windows Firewall:Define Program exceptions

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Windows Firewall\Profile\Windows Firewall: Define Port Exceptions

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files\Administratively assigned offline files

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files\ Prohibit ‘Make Available Offline’ for these files and folders
