NetSupport School integrates with Microsoft’s Active Directory structure, enabling you to manage Student and Tutor configurations centrally. From NetSupport School version 11, these configurations can be integrated using ADMX Files. In previous versions of NetSupport School, only ADM Template files were available to be imported into Active Directory to apply the Tutor or Student configuration.

NetSupport School 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).

NSS_Tutor_Machine.ADMX
This is a machine policy containing configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Tutor.

NSS_Tutor_User.ADMX
This is a user policy containing configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Tutor.

NSS_Student_Machine.ADMX
This is a machine policy containing configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Student.

NSS_Student_User.ADMX
This is a user policy containing configurable options that will be applied to the NetSupport School Student.

When you install NetSupport School the Template files will be copied to:

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