How to apply the NetSupport Notify ADMX files

You are here:

Notify integrates with Microsoft’s Active Directory structure, enabling you to manage Console and Agent configurations centrally. These configurations can be integrated using ADMX Files.

Notify includes four ready-made Administrative Templates using the ADMX format listed below. Each ADMX file will also include a corresponding ADMX language-specific resource file (.ADML).

NetSupport_Notify_Machine_Agent.admx
Machine based policies that will apply to the Notification Agent.

NetSupport_Notify_Machine_Console.admx
Machine based policies that will apply to the Notification Console.

NetSupport_Notify_User_Agent.admx
User based policies that will apply to the Notification Agent.

NetSupport_Notify_User_Console.admx
User based policies that will apply to the Notification Console.

When you install the Notify Console, the Template files will be copied to:

32bit C:\Program Files\NetSupport\NetSupport Notify\ADM Templates\ADMX
64bit C:\Program Files (x86)\NetSupport\NetSupport Notify\ ADM Templates\ADMX

The corresponding ADMX language-specific resource files (.ADML) for each of the above ADMX files will also be found in a language folder (e.g. en-GB) in the above location.

To apply an ADMX file to your Active Directory environment for the Notify configuration options to be visible in the Group Policy Management Console, the ADMX files listed above and their corresponding ADML file will need to be copied to your domain Central Store.

Note: If you have not created a Central Store for your domain, please refer to the Microsoft documentation on how to create the Central Store for ADMX files.

Below is the default location for a domain Central Store:

ADMX files are stored in this location: %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions
ADML files are stored in this location: %systemroot%\sysvol\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions\ll-cc*

*Where ll-cc represents the language identifier, such as en-US for English United States or en-GB for English Great Britain.

The templates will automatically be integrated once they are placed into the correct folder. However, all NetSupport policies are set to {not configured}, by default.
