RSAT on a Windows 2007 workstation. How do I create a GPO from my Windows 7 workstation using RSAT?
My environment is a Windows 2008 AD network.
The only way to create a Point and Print setting in Computer Configuration on my local Windows 7 Policy is by installing RSAT on Windows 7.
I am told I can then create a GPO from my Windows 7 pc that I can apply to my network for all Windows 7 workstations.
How do I create the Group Policy with my Windows 7 pc and RSAT?

Once you have RSAT installed you can just create it in the domain.  Do you have an OU for your workstations?  you can link the GPO there.

Thanks

Yes, I have an OU for my workstations. But when I open GPMO and create a new Group Policy the option is not there.
What is different about creating a Group Policy on a Windows 7 workstation running RSAT?
I don't understand.
I always just use GPMO.

ahh ok, yeah it is still GPMC,  you just need to turn on the feature after you install RSAT.

Got ya! However, I was hoping to get to a place where I can do Point and Print configuration in GPO under computer configuration \ printers for Windows 7. it still does not show up.
It does appear under user configuration in my GPO.
It does appear in my local GPO of my Windows 7 box after RSAT is installed.
However, no entry in GPMC GPO under computer configuration and printers.
Drat!

I also needed to copy the ADMX file for Windows 7 to my Group Policy store for AD.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
