Group Policy Support in Reflection

Reflection's Group Policy support provides administrators with an added tool for customizing and securing Reflection applications.

To use policies, the Reflection policy template must first be added to your policy editor as explained below. Each group policy features a description of what it can do on the Explain tab of the Properties sheet.

To install the Reflection policy template

  1. Locate ReflectionPolicy.adm in the adm folder in your Reflection distribution folder (or CD). This file needs to be available from the computer on which you will configure Group Policy.

    Note: The ADM template file is required for adding the template to the Group Policy Editor, but after you have added the template, the file is no longer needed.

  2. Run the Group Policy editor using one of the following techniques:
    • Type the following at the command line:


    • In the Active Directory Users and Computers console, open the properties for an Organizational Unit, click the Group Policy tab, and edit or create a new policy object.
  3. Under User Configuration, right-click Administrative Templates and select Add/Remove Templates.
  4. In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Add and browse to locate the ReflectionPolicy.adm file. Open the template, and then close the Add/Remove Templates dialog box.

Note: Most Reflection policies are configured per user. On Windows XP, view and edit these policies under Local Computer Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Reflection Settings. On newer Windows systems, view and edit these policies under Local Computer Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) > Reflection Settings.
