    Hey group –

    First of all, apologies if this is elsewhere on the forum, but I am not finding an exact answer to my questions below.

    I have posted this on the MS Forum last week and have 29 views thus far, but no replies.

    But –

    I am getting ready to update the GPO in our infrastructure. I am keen to get some pointers.

    I have located the “How to create and Manage the Central Store….” on the MS site, I can follow that with no issue…, but I think i may need some other guidance or assistance.

    First of All, we have an existing AD Environment. Single Domain, Single Forest – (Multi-Site/Multi DCs) Domain Functional Level is Server 2008, Forest Functional Level is Server 2008. I think I can install the Windows 10 GPO .msi files with no problem, correct? (Is there anything on the MS Site packing that up? – Managers need this as proof to proceed with update)

    But, I am wondering – Do I only need to install the latest one for Windows 10 Creators Update ? or Do I need to install all of them below that? (I’m thinking from an excel document I saw, I only need the above one. I do understand I may need to create different GPOs for different Win10 versions. I get that.

    Also, will my existing GPOs (for Win7) be untouched as to how I have them currently set?

    Also, “If” things do go horribly wrong, and I need to revert to the Backup of the Policy Definitions, I am unable to find any “Back Out” plans. (From the above document I did see where it shows to “copy” the Policy Definitions” folders on the Domain Controller. Is it simply copying the “backed up” definations back into the original folder?

    Any guidance would be appreciated greatly.
