GPMC- on windows 7
Posted on 2011-05-11
I believe WIndows 2008 Domain controllers have new features in the Group policy Settings, such as Preference. The features I liked in the preferences are the map drives and map printers. In the old versions of DCs we'll have to create a script and assign it for instance to user login.
Now, we have windows 2003 Domain. I thought about adding windows 2008 DC, then I will take advantage of the new features I mentioned, but I guess I don't need to go that far adding windows 2008 DC, I can just install new version of GPMC in windows 7, and this will enable me to use the new features just the same as having windows 2008 DC in the domain.
I have not tried this yet (installed new GPMS in Windows7), but I was wondering if any expert out there tried this approach of installing new GPMC in Windows 7 and whether they were anle to take advantage of the new feature of windows 2008 DC.
