    Sorry for not replying yesterday - I'm in the middle of a complete network rebuild in a primary school.... fun!
    I'm curious - was the defunct DC 2003 by any chance? If it was non-R2 i've seen compatability issues before when people have tried copying/importing them in to a newer server.

    Yes the PolicyDefinitions folder is there. I think the PolicyUpdates folder is if you have AGPM - Policies can be checked in and out from the folder.

    Update:
    After some digging around and a lot of searching - this is a known issue, oh why am I not surprised? Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008R2 admin templates cannot be managed from anything older than those OS's. So because I had earlier copied the files from the R2 DC to the 2k8 DC some of the templates are newer than 2k8 can cope with. Well not the OS but to be more precise the GPMC of 2k8. I can, however, manage the policies from a Windows 7 workstation if I install RSAT.

    Oh and incidentally, I have also discovered some unresolved SIDs in my travels around the policies. I am left to wonder how many years it's going to take to be rid of the fallout from a destroyed master DC.
