The alternative to using Vista as your GP management console is, if you
still want to be able to manage GP from downlevel clients, is to segregate
your GPOs based on OS. That is, create Vista GPOs that only apply to Vista
systems from Vista and then continue to manage non-Vista GPOs from downlevel
Windows. That obviously makes sense only if you have multiple folks managing
GP and you want to keep the environments separate.

Hi there,

 

You can create a Central Store in the SYSVOL (shared among Domain
Controllers) - no Windows Vista client is Single-Point-of-Failure! However,
all GP management should be performed from a Vista client as soon as you
introduce Vista in the domain.

 

You can read about the Central Store right here:
