Hi All,


I am trying to setup some adminstrative templates on a new Windows 2008 domain.  I see that in the existing windows 2003 AD, under "Group Policy Object Editor" - "Computer configuration" - "Administrative Templates", there are many rules.

In my Windows 2008 "Group Policy Management Editor", i don't see them there.  So, I went google and searched for "Administrative Templates for Windows 2008", downloaded the "2008ADMX.msi".  extracted it, copied the content to c:\windows\sysvol\sysvol (so they will sync to other DC).  When I tried to import the rules into Group Policy, the ADML seems like they are not the recognized format for importation.  Therefore, I couldn't get them in.

Am I doing this wrong from the begining?  If so, how could I get the rules to setup in Group Policy?  Basically, what I want to do is setup a policy, that will delete user's roaming profile upon logoff of the client stations.  Thank you very much.

Attached screen cap is from Windows 2008 AD.  thank you
