How to use GPO's for Windows 7 on Server 2003

I am trying to make changes to the Windows environment via GPO's but are not finding the controls for Windows 7. We have a single server all Windows network. The server is Server 2003 and all 55 computers are Windows 7.

I am trying to do things like supress the action center pop-ups from the workstations. Is there some sort of add on to control Windows 7 machines on the server?

Download the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=7d2f6ad7-656b-4313-a005-4e344e43997d&displaylang=en). You will have to install them on a computer running Windows 7 though.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The administrative templates will add the settings for windows 7 to your GPO Admin snap-in.
