Where can I import XP and 2003 server group policy objects into a 2000 server? Where can I find the templates for these objects?

The XP Group Policy Objects are on Windows XP Machines, the same situation for the 2003 ones. They will be imported into a GPO when you create it on either of those systems.

I'd recommend you download and install the Group Policy Management Console from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/default.mspx

It only installs on XP or 2003, but will allow a much more pleasant view of the policies.

Will the GPMC that you listed allow me to control GPO's in the domain or only local machine GPO's?

You can use the GPMC on your domain controller to manage GPOs for the domain.

Ok, I see that it will...and what might keep me from having the rights to modify or create GPO's using this utility from my PC? I'm a member of the domain admins group. When I attempt to do things like sync the DC's using the MMC from my desktop I get an access denied error. Haven't even tried with this utility yet.

The DC is a Win2K server. That's my problem. I need to manage the GPO's with XP and 2K3 elements. This won't install on 2K right? So how can I manage those GPO elements?

I know this can be done, I just don't feeling like asking the <expletive deleted> that I know who has done it.

If you connect to the Domain Controller from the XP workstation using either GPMC or Active Directory Users and Computers (then accessing Group Policy) the XP templates will automatically upload to the server.

Ok, but I consistently get an access denied error when I try to create a new gpo from the desktop. I've gone in to check for the XP options directly from the DC and they still aren't there.

This is evolving into a little more than it was originally, so I'll up the points.

Okay, I don't know why I'm getting that access denied error from the desktop...I think it's something to do with my account but not sure what. Anyway, logged on at a 2K3 server with another admin account, I can modify the GPO on the DC. This question is answered I guess. I need to know more, but I'll open another question.
