Group Policy – Use a Windows 7 management machine
To make the most of the new Group Policy functionality you need to have one management machine running the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC).
GPMC is available only as part of a downloadable package called Remote Server Administration Toolkit (RSAT).
The first step in creating a Windows 7 management machine is to download RSAT and install the GPMC component.
Search for “Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7.”
There is a 32-bit and 64-bit versions of RSAT, ensure you install the correct version for your architecture.
Once RSAT is installed, select Remote Server Administration Tools from inside Control Panel/Programs/Turn Windows Features on or off.
Select “Group Policy Management Tools” to install the GPMC, and “Active Directory Administrative Center” to add AD users and computers and other AD-related tools. When installed, GPMC is available by running GPMC.MSC from the command prompt, or in the Start menu
