There should be a Group Policy Management Console under Administrative Tools.

Some background...I did this on a 2003 server to deploy a software agent.

1- went to admin tools
2- group policy
3- added my agent

after that the directions tell me to go to active directory users and computers, domain, properties, group policy tab. I did that in server 2003 with no problems...the group policy tab was there.

"As we know, GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) has been built in Windows Server 2008, it replaces the Group Policy tab within the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Active Directory Users and Computers and Active Directory Sites and Services snap-ins with a button that starts the GPMC. In Windows Server 2008, the Group Policy tab has been removed. However, it is more convenient to use GPMC to manage group policies. I think that when you use the GPMC tool more, you will be used to it."

In other words. the Group Policy tab has been removed from Active Directory.  If your software agent deployment calls for accessing the Group Policy tab, just use the Group Policy Management Console instead.
