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:

I'm trying to recall if I read something that stated -  in a Windows
2003\XP\Vista  environment you need to create all Vista GPO's on one
specific Vista client.  Then that Vista Client serves as the central
repository for all VISTA Group Policies.   


Is that right?  I'm fairly certain I read something close to that?  But I
have a hard time thinking that the Vista Group Policy files (ADML\ADMX) on
the domain controllers wouldn't be updated?  Plus you would have one point
of failure if your Administrative Vista client died.   Can anyone clear my
head on this one.
