I don't think the admx files are copied to the GPO's anymore so that doesn't matter all that the admx files do is present the settings to the console it then generates a Registry.pol file that is placed in the GPO on the 2003 server this is what's replicated.
    Correct, Windows 2003 / XP etc.. do not know the policydefinitions folder exists, you will have to manage all Vista / 7 / Server 2008 / 08R2 policies from a Vista or newer machine.

    You need to create a "PolicyDefinitions" folder in SYSVOL\Policies. Copy the EN-US folder for the language files.

    After that fire up a Vista / 7 PC and you can manage the new features with Group Policy Management MMC.

    Found this on technet

    Summarized information:

    1. Unlike ADM files, ADMX files are not stored in individual GPOs. For domain-based enterprises, a central store location could be created for ADMX files that is accessible by anyone with permission to create or edit.

    2. Group Policy tools will continue to recognize custom ADM files you have in your existing environment, but will ignore any ADM file that has been superseded by ADMX files.

    3. New Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based policy settings can be managed only from Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-bsed administrative machines running Group Policy Object Editor or Group Policy Management Console.

    4. ADMX file with these new policy settings defined in it will not be exposed on the Windows 2003, Windows XP machines. GPO Editor on such machines cannot be used to modify these policy settings in ADMX and GPMC will display new Windows Vista Administrative Template policy settings as extra registry settings.

    5. The Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 versions of Group Policy Object Editor and Group Policy Management Console can be used to manage all operating systems that support Group Policy (Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP).

    Did the lack of .v2 profiles fix the 'The User Profile Service failed the login' issue? We are currently experiencing the same on a Win7 network.
