Group Policy on 2003 DC vs. 2008 DC
Posted on 2013-12-09
I have a domain with a Server 2003 DC and a Server 2008 DC. The domain and forest functional levels are Server 2003. I tried to setup group policy for screen saver timeout by editing group policy on the 2008 DC but was unable to do so. Normally on 2003, I would take the following steps:
Active Directory Users and Computers -> Right click on domain -> Click on Properties -> select Group Policy tab -> select Default Domain Policy and click the edit button. From there I can see the Screen Saver policies.
On the 2008 DC, the process is different. Following the same steps fails on the Properties screen. There is no Group Policy tab.
How do I accomplish group policy edits on the 2008 DC? I would like to retire the Server 2003 at some point.
