Windows 2008 Domain Group Policy Management Console

We raised our forest functional level and domain functional level to Windows Server 2008 over a year ago.

We have been performing a growing number of tasks through group policy but seem limited. In particular Computer Configuration - Policies - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Registry. I see on-line about a registry wizard which we do not have the option. I've seen ways of updating adm, admx files for Administrative Templates but its under a different section of the group policy management editor.

We are running Windows 2008 Standard on all our domain controllers, not 2008 R2.

Registry entry was deployed through our login script, kixstart.

We will be updating to Windows Server 2012 in the new year and hopefully gain more control through gpo's.

It does sounds like you need to update the ADM and ADMX templates in your domain.  There is a very long Technet article about all this here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/magazine/2008.01.layout.aspx

I downloaded the latest Windows 2008 admx files and created a central store in sysvol for their location. From group policy management editor, it now states that admx files are being retrieved from the central store. See attached. For some reason I am no better off with added functionality through the editor. Including the registry wizard.
