Group Chat Client and Group Policies RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone get some advice on how to apply policies to the group chat client

    I have looked at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5d6f4b90-6980-430b-9f97-ffadbc07b7a9&displaylang=en
    However I must be missing something as the.adm file seems to be for communicator only and not group chat.
    The excel spread sheet talks about Group Chat Policies but I can't see how you actually apply them.

    The only area I have had some success with is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\GroupChatConsole\Permissions\DisableIM

    What I am really after is a way to set <domainName> \ Chat Room Domain. (Also is anyone can explain the significance of this setting that would be appreciated)

    Thanks for any help

  • There is a separate GroupChatConsole.adm for Group Chat policies.  It's in the Group Chat Server\Policy Template folder after you install.

    I too am looking for this info..

    In fact, for some reason, i have to not use automatic settings and add a new login,  i have to manually enter the host, and uncheck use my windows creds.. and check off use default server address..

    If there is some way to make this change globally and have the account info entered automatically based on who is logged in, this would be great (as you can with communicator).
