Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To create new software restriction policies

  1. Open Software Restriction Policies.

  2. On the Action menu, click New Software Restriction Policies.

Notes

  • Different administrative credentials are required to perform this procedure, depending on your environment:

    • If you create new software restriction policies for your local computer: To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

    • If you create new software restriction policies for a computer that is joined to a domain: To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group or the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

  • To open Software Restriction Policies, see "Open Software Restriction Policies" in Related Topics.

  • If software restriction policies have already been created for a Group Policy object (GPO), the New Software Restriction Policies command does not appear on the Action menu. To delete the software restriction policies that are applied to a GPO, in the console tree, right-click Software Restriction Policies, and then click Delete Software Restriction Policies. When you delete software restriction policies for a GPO, you also delete all software restriction policies rules for that GPO. After you delete software restriction policies, you can create new software restriction policies for that GPO.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
