Comments in GPMC


Introduced in the new GPMC for Windows Vista/Windows 2008 is adding comments of your own to settings you make in a GPO.

Whenever you do any setting in a GPO you can add on a Comment in the new Comment page writing whatever you like. This is stored in the GPO so you will always have it for reference for further use later or any other purpose you might have.

These comments you write will of course print out on your reports created from GPMC, which I think is a very nice feature added.

Comments are stored at \\\SYSVOL\\policies\{GUID}\[MACHINE]/[USER]\comment.cmtx which is of course an XML file containing all your comments of settings in the GPO.

Using comments for your settings might make your life easier but remember that they wont show up if you are still using XP!
