xmlns Attribute

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The xmlns attribute specifies the default namespace for all elements in either the .admx or .adml file.


xmlns= "http://schemas.microsoft.com/GroupPolicy/2006/07/PolicyDefinitions" >


The purpose of the URI is to identify the standard schema used to describe the ADMX format. Even though the namespace name begins with "http:", it has nothing to do with the HTTP protocol, a specific web site or any network-accessible resource.


This XML fragment displays the header for the .adml file containing the URI all Microsoft Group Policy .admx and .adml files must use.

<policyDefinitionResources xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" revision="1.0" schemaVersion="1.0" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/GroupPolicy/2006/07/PolicyDefinitions">
