In tip 3611, I described how to use Windows NT 4.0 system policy for Windows 2000 clients in a Windows NT 4.0 domain.
You can use the UpdateMode value name, a REG_DWORD data type, at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Update, to control the application of system policy.
Value Meaning 0 No policies. System policies are not applied, because no source file is specified. 1 Automatic. System policies are read from the Net Logon share of the authenticating server. 2 Manual. The system policy file is specified in the value of NetworkPath.The default data value is 1.
