Configuring Group Policy options

To configure Group Policy options

  1. Start Group Policy Editor.
  2. Navigate to the Unix Settings | Authentication Services | Client Configuration node.
  3. Double-click Group Policy Configuration in the results view to open the Group Policy Configuration Properties dialog.

    The Properties dialog contains a list of configuration settings.

  4. Enter the configuration settings. Detailed help text is available for each setting. You can resize the help window using the splitter control between the settings and the help text.
  5. Click OK.

    Note: Options that are not set (blank) use the default value defined by Group Policy. Any options that are set in the policy override local settings stored in the configuration file.

Client-Side Extensions policy

The Client-Side Extensions policy determines which Client-Side Extensions (CSEs) apply policy and in what order.

To determine policy processing order, check the Define this policy option in the Client-side Extensions Properties dialog. Click Add, Edit, Remove, Move Up, Move Down, or Reset to change the policy processing configuration.

For security reasons the following extensions cannot be removed from policy processing:

  • Licensing Extension
  • Safeguard Authentication Services Configuration Extension
  • Microsoft Security Extension
  • Macintosh Settings Extension

Safeguard Authentication Services policies

One goal of Group Policy is to simplify and centralize Safeguard Authentication Services configuration data. Use Safeguard Authentication Services Policies to configure everything from basic settings to advanced host access control and account override information.

Configuration policy

The Safeguard Authentication Services Configuration policy manages runtime configuration settings stored in the Safeguard Authentication Services configuration file (vas.conf) located in /etc/opt/quest/vas/.

Safeguard Authentication Services Configuration policies support non-tattooing, block inheritance, ACL filtering, and enforced settings. Policies applied later do not override enforced settings. When you unlink all Safeguard Authentication Services Configuration policies, the next GPO processing event restores the Safeguard Authentication Services configuration file to its previous state.
