I have a question. At my work we have 3 domain controllers. all 3 were windows 2000. I did a upgrade on 2 of the DC's to 2003. I ran forest and domain prep first. When does the AD group policy's become windows 2003 GP's? I noticed after i upgraded my main DC and another DC the new group policies have not been added? when do they get added?

If you install and run Group Policy Management (the .Msi is on the MS web site) and see if your policy still exist first.

The GPO's should simply be part of AD and thus not worry about being 2000 or 2003 unless the setting are 2003 specific.
