[gptalk] Re: Multiple issues with GPMC

gp time was about 5 seconds (for me) and less than a full second when
ran on the server.

the dsa.msc happens on both systems albeit, can I uninstall and
re-install gpmc while the server is running without effecting users??
also as an update, if I try to view settings and wait approx 15
minutes it comes up, I ahve viewed all policy links including default
DC policy and for each and every single one it says there are no
settings define.  how can this be the case?
