I recently did an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8. I lost the access to Group Policy Management Tool. I checked online and all my searches tell me that it should be there and the articles apply to Windows 8 and Windows Server 2003, 2008. Yet I can not seem to be able to find it on my machine or a place to download it from.

Thanks,
Sam

Click Windows Key and "R" on your keyboard to open Run Command and type gpedit.msc

it should open your group policy editor

This opens my Local Group Policy. Before I was able to access the DC Group Policy from my Windows 7 local PC as well.

If you need Group Policy Management console then follow same above steps but instead of gpedit,msc type gpmc.msc

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

so that means it is not installed by default. You can goto Control Panel and Program and Features and Click Windows Features on or off . In that you will go under Remote Server Administration tools and under that select Group Policy Management tools

If you still don't see above then you need, Windows 8 Professional or Enterprise in order to manage group policy.

I do have Windows 8 Enterprise and that option is not available. See screen shots.

Then you simply missed to upgrade RSAT as well. Install RSAT for win 8.
