Windows Components are missing from Group Policy. How do I add them?

The Windows Components are missing from Group Policy.  In the Policydefinitions folded on the DC there are only a few policies.

Where do I get the ADMX and ADML policies to put in the folder?

From the latest OS you'll be joining to the domain. If that's server 5016, grab them from there. If you have windows 10-1709 or 1803 though  those are newer, so you'd grab from the latest.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I do not think you understand.  The servers do not have any.  See attached.   Unless I am not understanding "grab them from there"   How about a location?

A default clean install of ANY version of windows has them in the windows directory. What you showed was default location of a central store... Which is NOT automatically created nor are files automatically copied in there.

So someone started the process of creating a central store at some point in the past. And didn't complete it or later deleted files from it. But what you took a Screenshot of is not the default location for local policy files.

I know you are trying to help, however, you are not telling me "where" the files are.  You say "grab them", but do not tell me where.  So your help is not beneficial.

Do you have a windows box? Did you go in the windows directory as u mentioned? Did you try using that search box in explorer to find any *.admx files?

Sorry that I am replying on an android phone and don't have immediate access to a computer to do a basic search for you. I'll do better next time.

I copied all the files from a server at another location and placed them in the PolicyDefinitions and EN-US folders.   Hence I figured out your "Grab Them" terminology.
