Importing NightWatchman group policies

You can set global policies for NightWatchman using Active Directory Group Policy. A sample template (1Enwm.adm) is provided in the NightWatchman Management Center zip file. This is a standard Group Policy template and is fully editable. Support is provided on a reasonable endeavors basis.
