I'm trying to make a registry change via GPO and have written this ADM file,
but the change never takes place on the computer I'm testing. I can see the
GP is applied. Am I doing something wrong? I copied this format from one my
other ADM files that does work.

CLASS MACHINE
CATEGORY "Metco"
CATEGORY "AutoDisconnect Changes"
POLICY "Changes Autodisconnect Timeout"
Explain !!AutoDisconnect
KEYNAME "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters"
VALUENAME "autodisconnect"
VALUE NUMERIC 4294967295
END POLICY
END CATEGORY
END CATEGORY

[strings]

AutoDisconnect=Changes the setting
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmans erver\parameters\AutoDisconnect to 0xffffffff which means that network drives never disconnect.

Why don't you try using Group Policy Preferences? It's a better way to solve
this kind of tasks.

Is Group Policy Preferences only for 2008? I ran across that when I was
researching this problem, but couldn't figure out how to make it work and I
thought this was only if we had 2008AD. I'll do some more research because it
did seem like a nice solution.

You don't need a 2008AD. What you need is
(1) The Group Policy Preferences CSE installed on the target clients (so
they can understand the Preferences)
(2) A Server 2008(+) or Windows Vista(+) management station to manage
the Preference settings from.

That's all:
