Policy Management Tools

Microsoft provides several different tools administrators can use to create and manage local and domain group policies. The operating system version the administrator is using to manage policies determines the functionality the tools provide. As an example, when new group policies are created using the Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 Group Policy Management Console, the GPO folder utilizes the new ADMX/ADML templates, whereas the Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 tool uploads the original ADM template files into the GPO folder.

This section of the chapter details the tools provided with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 to manage local and group policies.
