Hi,
I have jst set up a sbs 2008 server and was about to set up some group policies but I can't find the group policy tab.It isn't inthe usual place in any of the ou's.  Does anyone know if its hidden and how can I get it back.  I'm a bit lost without it.

Thanks

Group Policies have been moved out of Active Directory Users and Computers and into their own management tools for a while.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools and open the Group Policy Management Console. That is the tool which is now used for managing GPO.

Hello andreadeepblue,

Matt is correct
or
Start > Type the following in the Start/Search box  > gpmc.msc {enter}

will open the same management console :)
