Our domain consists of a wide array of operating systems including XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Server 2003, Server 2008 and/or Server 2008 R2. Is there a preferred Group Policy Management Console I should be using?
Yes. You should always use the latest and greatest GPMC. As of this writing, that’s the GPMC on Windows 8, but the Windows 7 one is just fine too. (Note: You will get more settings and features if you use the Windows 8, or Server 2012 version.)
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
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 !
