We're planning on implimenting a network with only Server 2019 Core and Redhat.

I've warned the PM that from a support point of view we wont have the ability to edit GPO's since we can't run GPMC.

It's still not possible to fully edit GPO's either with powershell or a web solution... at least not without directly editing the XML?

TIA

    Hi,
    Based on my research, Windows Server Core doesn't have the GPMC Interfaces installed, applications that use this interface will fail.
    Roles, Role Services, and Features included in Windows Server - Server Core
    It is suggested to remote access the Server with GPMC installed.
    For your reference:
