    Unable to Snap-in 'Group Policy'

    1) Windows Server 2008 Standard > Start > Run > enter "mmc.msc" > message = Microsoft Management Console cannot be found: Shouldn't the MMC be accessible this way?

    2) Accessing the MMC another way > add Group Policy Snap-in > cannot save console, message = must be logged in a domain user: I'm using W2K8S as a super OS, so how do I add the Snap-in?

    1.) Don't you want to run mmc.exe to run the console?
    2.) Can't you just run gpedit.msc?

    1) .exe.......the simplest things are oft overlooked - what a bonehead (me)...thanks.
    2) The goal is to shut down the shutdown event tracker, so yes, I guess I could - or should....thank you again.

    Joe, are you using W2K8S as a workstation?
