Missing default Windows ADMX Templates after importing VMware UEM ADMX files

In VMware User Environment Manager 9.0 (UEM) after you have copied over the VMware UEM Manager GPO’s (.ADMX and .ADML) to the central store for group policy administrative policy templates on a domain controller you cannot view the default Windows ADMX templates such System, Network, Control Panel etc.

Issue
After copying the UEM GPO templates to  \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions. You cannot see “System” under the Computer Configuration – Policies – Administrative Templates.

What is a Central Store on Domain Controller?
It’s a location to centrally store the .ADMX and .ADML files in a domain environment. The path is as follows:

.ADMX - \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions
.ADML - \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-US

MS Reference KB - https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/kb/3087759

Where is the default group policy administrative templates stored?
When central store is not enable the .ADMX and .ADML is stored at the default location on a domain controller. The path is as follows:

.ADMX - C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions
.ADML - C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\en-US

Solution
If you cannot see the Windows default templates post enabling the central store you will have to copy all the ADMX and ADML manually from the Windows default location to Central Store on a domain controller

Copy all the .ADMX/.ADML files from Default to Central Store:

Particulars

Source

Destination

.ADMX C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions
.ADML C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\en-US \\FQDN\SYSVOL\FQDN\policies\PolicyDefinitions\en-US

I hope the above steps will help you to get your default Windows ADMX templates back and help you complete the remaining VMware UEM 9.0 server configuration.

Thanks,
Aresh
