This article is not part of the Building Microsoft System Center Cloud series but we need these DCs for our Hyper-V cluster that we are using in our Cloud series.
Create a central store for GPO administrative templates
You should do this for every domain that you create because it is always easier to do that before the environment is switched from the Deployment status to the Production status.
- Create PolicyDefinitions in \\<Domain FQDN>\SYSVOL\<Domain FQDN>\Policies and copy the .admx and .adml files.
- The best practice is to download the current Administrative Templates (.admx and .adml files) from the Microsoft Downloads because you can usually find there a few files that you do not have in your local store. In our case I just copied them from the C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions.
