Win10 GPO and 2003r3 DFL

We currently are running 2008r2 and 2012r2 domain controllers at a 2003r2 domain functional level. We are planning up upgrading the DFL to 2008r2 but have some other things to take care of first.

With our DFL level at 2003r2 can we import and use the Windows 10 admx group policy templates as expected prior to upgrading the DFL?

Craig SchultzAsked:
Who is Participating?
Yes, the DFL will not have any influence on that.

I reckon you can, as long as you manage the group policy admx files from your 2008r2 or windows server 2012R2.  The domain functional level set at 2003R2 shouldn't matter,  just means that you will have to download the templates manually

here is some more information on the ADMX templates
