With Server 2008 Microsoft has introduced te new ADMX Format for
administrative Templates

If you want to configure a central store for the Group Administrative
Templates, you have to:

1. Create

\domainnameSYSVOLdomainamepolicies

if it doesn’t already exist

2. Copy the ADMX-Files from the folder

%systemtroot%PolicyDefinitions

to

\domainnameSYSVOLdomainamepolicies

By doing this the files are replicated to every Domain-Controller in the
domain. The Group Policy Management Console checks this filder as an additional
source.
