The documentation for the GPOAccelerator says:
'The Enterprise Client (EC) environment referred to in this guidance consists of a domain using AD DS in which computers running Windows Server 2008 with Active Directory manage client computers that can run either Windows Vista or Windows XP, and member servers running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003 R2.'
Does this mean that these GPOs are useless without a Windows Server 2008 domain?!?
I've been chasing this for you, and the answer is no, the GPO's are not useless without a 2008 domain. You can use the GPO accelerator to create GPOs for a 2003 domain too. You just need to ensure you follow the correct security guides when creating GPOs for the relevant platform, 2003 or 2008.
The official response from the GPO Dev Team was:
"The GPOAccelerator creates Group Policy Objects (GPOs) in an Active Directory (AD). The "flavor" of the AD used shouldn't matter, but creating GPOs using GPOAccelerator has only ever been tested using WS03 and WS08 based ADs.
However, customers must keep in mind that the GPOAccelerator creates GPOs that match those described in the different security guides... each GPO created by the tool has a specific purpose and must be applied correctly for it to function as expected. The following security Guides are supported by the GPOAccelerator:
• Windows Server 2008 Security Guide
• Windows Vista Security Guide
• Windows Server 2003 Security Guide
• Windows XP Security Guide
• 2007 Microsoft Office Security Guide
Customers looking to use the GPOAccelerator must familiarize themselves with the recommendations included in one\all of these guides before using the GPOAccelerator to create/deploy GPOs in their environments."
Hope that clarifies.
