Hi list, I came along an interesting blog: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/grouppolicy/2016/10/12/admx-version-history/I assume most of you have a Central Store. If yes how do you handle the ‘issue’ discussed in that blog? Very curious about your answers/suggestions! Regards,Han

I’m not a big fan of the Central Store, even though it’s widely used. It hamstrings your ability to control what ADMX/L files you are working with in cases where you want to test new versions, see the effect on GPOs generated with older

versions, etc. I like and use the Local ADMX redirect settings mentioned at the end of that article on a regular basis. But I think it depends upon how many hands you have in the pie, with regards to GP management. If you have a lot of folks managing GP, then

having a single consistent repository like the Central Store is probably a good thing and then you need a test environment that mimics production, where you can test and vet newer ADMXs before rolling them out.

Typically for me? I just don’t care. If some of these settings are important for you, I’d create some GPP Registry policies and just configure what you need there.
