Loading the Administrative Template

Administrative Template > Loading the Administrative Template

The Administrative Template consists of the ActiveRoles.admx (ADMX) and ActiveRoles.adml (ADML) files. The ADML file is a language-specific complement to the ADMX file.

To load the Administrative Template to a domain-wide Group Policy object, you need to copy the ADMX and ADML files to the central store in the sysvol folder on a domain controller:

  1. Copy the ADMX file to the folder %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions
  2. Copy the ADML file to the folder %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-US

Create those folders if they do not exist. For more information about ADMX files, see Managing Group Policy ADMX Files Step-by-Step Guide at

Group Policy Object Editor automatically reads all ADMX files found in the central store of the domain in which the Group Policy object is created. You can configure Active Roles policy settings in Group Policy Object Editor by selecting User Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Active Roles Snap-in Settings or Computer Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Active Roles/Administration Service Auto-connect Settings, and then apply the Group Policy object as appropriate.

Communication ports

Communication ports

This section provides a list of communication ports that need to be open in the firewall for Active Roles to function properly.

Access to the managed environment

Communication ports > Access to the managed environment

If the environment managed by Active Roles is located behind a firewall, then the following ports must be open between the Active Roles Administration Service and managed environment.

For instance, if there is a firewall between Active Roles and DNS, then port 15172 must be open (Inbound/Outbound) on the Active Roles host (or the firewall between Active Roles and Exchange) and port 53 must be open on the DNS server (or the firewall between Active Roles and DNS).

Access to DNS servers

  • Port 53 TCP/UDP Inbound/Outbound
