Group Policy Tab Missing In ADUC for Windows 7
Posted by William Diaz on October 5, 2011
I recently needed to look into the Group Policy tab in Active Directory Users and Computer from my Win7 workstation but it wasn’t there. Normally, I switch to my XP workstation (cause I have been to lazy to explore this missing tab … until now). With Windows 7 and Server 2008, the GP tab can only be accessed from the Group Policy Management Console. You will need to install the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) to access this console on a Windows 7 PC. Afterwards, enable GPMC from the Control Panel > Turn Windows features on or off > Remote Server Administration Tools > Feature Administration Tools > Group Policy Management Tools.
You can then open the Group Policy Management Console from an mmc or running gpmc.msc. Tip: add both ADUC and GPMC to the same MMC.
