Where do I find GPMC in Windows 2008

1 Comment

When you install Windows 2008 and promote it to a Domain Controller, GPMC isn’t in your Administrative Tools.

In Windows 2008 everything is divided into Roles and Features. Roles are major “changes” to a server, for example Domain Controller, Terminal Server etc. Features is more or less “Add/Remove Windows components” which we have had in the past but of course with some more things.

One of these “more things” is the GPMC which you need to add manually using the Server Manager: Add Features.

After GPMC has been installed you can find it as normal in the Administrative Tools.
