Windows Server 2008 ( Services and GPO Processing ) RRS feed

  • Question

  • There are numerous services that exists in W2K3 that no longer are available in W2K8. For example, Alerter and Firewall\Internet Connection Sharing is a single service in W2K3 but in W2K8 its two services (Microsoft Firewall and Internet Connection Sharing Service).


    So my question is if you have a GPO configured for W2K3 and it runs on a W2K8 server what will happen when it tries to configure the services that don't exists? Any error log entry.


    And visa versa with W2K8 service not on W2K3.


    Thanks...Donald A. Schmidt
