Starter Group Policy Objects

Updated: January 9, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

System Starter Group Policy Objects (GPOs) for the following scenarios are available in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 with Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT):

  • Windows Vista Enterprise Client (EC)

  • Windows Vista Specialized Security Limited Functionality (SSLF) Client

  • Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) EC

  • Windows XP SP2 SSLF Client

System Starter GPOs are read-only Starter GPOs that provide a baseline of settings for a specific scenario. Like Starter GPOs, System Starter GPOs derive from a GPO, let you store a collection of Administrative template policy settings in a single object, and can be imported.

System Starter GPOs are included as part of Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 with RSAT and do not have to be downloaded and installed separately.

The System Starter GPOs included with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 with RSAT provide recommended Group Policy settings for the following scenarios described in either the Windows Vista Security Guide or the Windows XP Security Guide:

  • The computer and user Group Policy settings that are recommended for the Windows Vista EC client environment are contained in the Windows Vista EC Computer and Windows Vista EC User System Starter GPOs.

  • The computer and user Group Policy settings that are recommended for the Windows Vista SSLF client environment are contained in the Windows Vista SSLF Computer and Windows Vista SSLF User System Starter GPOs.

  • The computer and user Group Policy settings that are recommended for the Windows XP SP2 EC environment are contained in the Windows XP SP2 EC Computer and Windows XP SP2 EC User System Starter GPOs.

  • The computer and user Group Policy settings that are recommended for the Windows XP SP2 SSLF client environment are contained in the Windows XP SP2 SSLF Computer and Windows XP SP2 SSLF User System Starter GPOs.

You no longer have to download these System Starter GPOs because they are included in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 with RSAT.
