Server Core and GPMC

DynamiteDan 1 Reputation point

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?

    It is suggested to remote access the Server with GPMC installed.
