I have server 2008 domain controllers. I ran Windows Server 2008 R2 Adprep.
There are certain Group Policy options not available in the Group Policy Management console on my Server 2008 console, while I am able to set those policies from a 2008R2 or Windows 7 console. For instance in the Preferences - Power Options Power Plan (Windows Viasta and later), see the two images. I ran against more of these settings not available from the server 2008 gpmc.

Is it possible to make these items visible, and manageable on my server 2008 servers? gpmc in 2008R2 gpmc in 2008

Thanks for your reply. The Server 2008 Domain Controllers are able to roll out these policies they aren't able to edit?

Yes they can, they are just policies stores on a FRS share, it's not a problem ;)
