Information about new Group Policy preferences in Windows Server 2008
Update is available via WSUS.
Thanks for the clarification OverWorked
I was hoping to use the server 2008 TS to create these tools as a apps for the TS-web page so i could grab them wherever i was in school. But they dont work on server 2008 has anyone got any suggestions of a quick work around on this
what about 64 bit domain controllers ? how does one use GPMC equivalent then ?
any idea please ?
If you want to manage a Windows 2003 server x64 or not from an XP client machine you should probably be using the latest version of the Admin Pack http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en
If your client is Vista or 7 you will need to use Download details: Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 on the client. This should let you manage both newer and older servers.
Thanks for the reply mate,
I've downloaded: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 Administration Tools Pack for x64 editions
here's the error message:
Windows cannot find 'gpedit.msc'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.
so some of my domain controller is now become useless.
any help would be appreciated.
Did you install it onto a server rather than a client and also did you uninstall any previous versions of the admin pack before hand. You may need to uninstall it and see if that restores the older version then remove that before putting on the new one. If that does not work you may need to do some repairing of assosiations and stuff to make the snapins work again. I have not done that personally but it should be possible perhaps by installing the older version again which is probably in your system32 folder.
You should still be able to manage the policies as it looks to just be the snapin that is not working. You could try installing the tools on an XP client and managing from there as a temporary measure.
