You would need to update the GP management tools to GPMC 2.0 for Server 2003
to manage Vista policies on a Server 2003 system. As far as I know there is
no such update yet. Therefore, currently, you need to create and manage the
policies on a Vista system, although they can be distributed by a Server 2003
DC. This doc gives a good overview: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/win...b090dc4fd.mspx
There are extensions for wireless policies that you need to deploy those
from a Server 2003 domain: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/net...ta_ad_ext.mspx
There is also lots of good info on how to deploy GP with Vista at: http://technet2.microsoft.com/Window....mspx?mfr=true
Your question may already be answered in Windows Vista Security: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/047...otectyourwi-20
