Resolution

goal
When a user creates a new GPO in the Repository, where do the ADM templates come from?

goal
Do ADM templates come from the console computer or from the Repository computer?

goal
When a user creates a new GPO, what platform settings can the user expect to see in the ADM template?

fact
NetIQ Group Policy Administrator 4.x

fact
NetIQ Group Policy Administrator 5.0

fix
The Repository in Group Policy Administrator (GPA) encapsulates GPedit and therefore has the same behavior as GPedit.  The ADM templates used when creating a new GPO in the Repository are the come from the client computer that hosts the console that creates the GPO.  As a result, the template may have only the settings specified for type of computer that hosts the console.
