Updating adm files

If you do not have GPMC or cannot install it then you’ll need to edit the GPO via the regular means, i.e.

from Active Directory Users and Computers management tool (dsa.msc). Right-click an existing GPO (or create an new GPO, then right-click on it) and select Now re-open the Administrative Templates section and browse to the new settings location.

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy Prevents the system from updating the Administrative Templates source files automatically when you open Group Policy.

By default, when you start Group Policy, the system loads the most recently revised copies of the Administrative Templates source files (.adm) that it finds in the \inf directory.

If you are using a central store (and you should) every time that you open the Administrative Templates in a Group Policy the information will be retrieved from that location which basically is \domain.local\sysvol\domain.local\Policies\Policy Definitions.
