Overview

GPMC simplifies the management of Group Policy by making it easier to understand, deploy, manage, and troubleshoot Group Policy implementations. GPMC also enables automation of Group Policy operations via scripting.

GPMC can be used to manage Windows Server 2003 as well as Windows 2000 based Group Policy implementations. Customers who have at least one valid license of Windows Server 2003 may obtain and use an unlimited number of copies of GPMC. Please see the End User License Agreement (EULA) provided with the GPMC software for details on licensing terms.

    Key enhancements delivered via GPMC include:

    A unified graphical user interface (GUI) that makes Group Policy much easier to use.

    Backup/restore of Group Policy objects (GPOs).

    Import/export and copy/paste of GPOs and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) filters.

    Simplified management of Group Policy–related security.

    HTML reporting for GPO settings and Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) data.

    Scripting of Group Policy related tasks that are exposed within this tool (not scripting of settings within a GPO).

Prior to GPMC, administrators were required to use several Microsoft tools to manage Group Policy. GPMC integrates the existing Group Policy functionality exposed in these tools into a single, unified console, along with the new capabilities listed above.
