I have installed LAPS (Local Administrator Password Solution) for my Active Directory domain, and have started to configure Group Policy so that I can use it. Unfortunately, the group policy objects do not include the appropriate LAPS settings...its as if the templates never got put in the right spot. How do I fix this? Any insight as to why they might not be in the right spot would be helpful too.

Go to C:\windows\policydefinitions on the system you installed it on. If you installed it on a DC, it's likely that your domain is configured to use a central policy store, which is in a different location than c:\windows\policydefinitions. You should be able to find the admx files in that folder, then move them to C:\windows\sysvol\domain\policies\policydefinitions

That will cause them to show up when editing GPOs. Note, though, that there are also ADML files in the en-us subdirectory of c:\windows\policydefinitions folder that have to be moved to the corresponding folder in sysvol.
