How do I upgrade Group Policy for Windows 7? Currently when I edit a policy I only see settings for 2000/XP. What do I need to do?

If you have a Windows 7 computer you can install RSAT on then this will give you access to the new group policy options.

You also need to copy the ADMX templates to the proper SYSVOL folder. See this link for help.

    ??? RSAT is to administer Windows Server from a Windows client PC, it won't give you access to something that isn't already there. Mar 18, 2010 at 12:36
  • RSAT contains the new templates, but you're right they need to be copied to the server. See my edit above.
