Windows 7 group policies without upgrading schema to Server 2008R2 - use Win 7 PC ?
I want to start making some new group policies for Windows 7. We have 1 Server 2008 R2 server but it's currently not a DC. It could be but ideally, Iíd prefer to leave it as a member server and not do a schema upgrade (did this last year for to get to server 2008 level)
From other posts Iíve read, it seems possible to manage it from a Windows 7 machine. What is the easiest way?
Do I need to install GPMC tools or do I need to install Remote Server Tools?...do I have to export the ADM's?
Thanks very much in advance for any help/advice.

We have some win7 machines, with are 2003 mixed schema.
I manage the group policies on my win7 machine with all the RAST installed. for MS basic GPs you dont need to import/export and ADMs
Thanks to burgemaster from:

If you've done the Schema update to 2008 already, I believe the R2 update is only 3 versions and takes no time at all :-D

Thanks very much. I already have RAST installed so i'll read up on what I need to do to change the policies on my machine and apply the domain wide.
