I just installed a new Server 2008 or Sever 2012 machine and I dont see the GPMC. How do I access it?
Unless your server is a domain controller, you have to install the GPMC which on a Server 2008 machine is done by installing the GPMC feature in Server Manager. When you promote a server to a domain controller, the GPMC is installed by default.

But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
