Add The ‘Group Policy Management Console’

KB ID 0001615


On a Domain Controller you will get Group Policy Management, (by default) listed under administrative tools. But if you have a ‘Management Server‘ of a ‘Jump Box‘, that you want to install the tool onto, (without making it a domain controller!) Then do the following;

Option 1: Install GPMC with Powershell

This is the quickest and simplest option! Open a PowerShell Windows and execute the following command;

Install-WindowsFeature –Name GPMC

 Add Group Policy Managenent with PowerShell

Note: For older, (Windows Server 2012 and older) servers use the following commands instead.

Import-Module servermanager
Add-WindowsFeature –Name GPMC

Option 2: Install GPMC with Add Roles and Features

From Server Manager > Manage > Add Roles And Features > Proceed to ‘Features‘ > Select Group Policy Management > Next > Finish.

Add Group Policy Managenent
