Why are you extending the schema?  Are you adding a second DC?  What OS is your current DC(s) running?

If you're referring to GPOs, you don't need to extend the schema.  However, you do need to manage group policy from a Windows 7 machine.  Also, it is ideal to create separate GPOs for Windows 7 machines.

If you're not adding a DC or moving to 2008, you should not need to extend your AD schema.

I'd disregard that comment.  You don't need that.  Just use MMC on a designated Windows 7 machine to manage GPOs for your domain that will affect Windows 7 machines.

Note that if you try to edit a GPO created on a Windows 7 machine on Server 2003, you'll get some errors - just need to keep that in mind.

MMC like local snap in? lol, for 50 computers? which are all going to be locked down through the 2003 OU also, so the OU takes over the settings making the Local kinda pointless.

Anything else you can suggest I need something I can do within about an hour. I thought you could just update the ADMX files and have the server manage new windows 7 users

If you use a Windows 7 Domain member, log in as a domain admin and use MMC to add the Group Policy snap in, connect to the domain in the snap-in and create and manage the GPO.  I'm not speaking of local policies.  You can also just download the Group Policy Management Console onto the Windows 7 machine.

You only need to do this from one machine, but the issue is that you cannot use Windows 2003 to completely manipulate GPO for Windows 7 because it will be missing some features.  You can instead use a Windows 7 machine to modify your domain group policies.

He just told you all of that!

Log into a WINDOWS 7 workstation that IS a domain member
RUN MMC
Load the Group Policy Snap in
COnnect to your domain with the GP snapin
EDIT/CREAT GPO's on your OU of choice
Save GPO

I did that but some options are not available for instance the pinning option, this doesn't really add all the GPO's or am i missing something?

Or the easiest method?  Get a 2008R2 DC.
