I am currently running a DC/GC on Windows 2008 Server Core and wish to remote manage Group Policy with RSAT.
However i cant install the Group Policy Management Tools within RSAT as a feature, it just isnt there!
The server I am trying to manage from is a Windows 2008 Server with the terminal service role installed.
There is also another DC/GC in the forest running Windows Server 2003.
Any ideas?

Hello jeremypemberton,

The Group Policy Management Tools are a default tool in the RSAT package. There are some notes on the GPMC snapin known issues in the following KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941314.

If you still have issues, I would recommend that you uninstall your current version of RSAT and reinstall.

Regards,

as this is a server and not vista i dont think that those posts are relevant. My understanding is that rsat is installed on the server as a feature not as a separate tool

When you go to add a feature, do you see the Group Policy Management option? It is not under the Remote Server Administration Tools as you might expect.
