Administration | Authentication Client

The Client can be configured using the administrative template in the Group Policy Management Console.

  1. Open Group Policy Management and navigate to the GPO you want to edit.
  2. Right click on the GPO and select Edit…
  3. In the Group Policy Management Editor dialog box, expand Computer Configuration, Policies, Administrative Templates, and click Specops Authentication Client.
  4. Double-click the settings you want to configure.
  5. Make the desired changes, and click OK.

If you configure the settings, it is recommended to create a Central Store for Group Policy Administrative Templates and add the Specops Password Reset Administrative template.

Create a Central Store for Group Policy Administrative Templates

The Central Store for Administrative Templates allows you to store all template files in a single location on SYSVOL where they can be accessed and presented on any server from your domain. To create a Central Store for Group Policy Administrative Templates, copy the Specops uReset Client ADMX/ADML files from  %windir%PolicyDefinitions.

The ADMX should be copied to:

<domainfqdn>sysvol<domainfqdn>PoliciesPolicyDefinitions

The ADML should be copied to:

<domainfqdn>sysvol<domainfqdn>PoliciesPolicyDefinitionsen-us
