To ensure that you are connected to the correct central archive, review the configuration of the AGPM Server connection. If an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) has not configured the AGPM Server connection for you, then you must manually configure it.

To select an AGPM Server
  1. In the Group Policy Management Console tree, click Change Control in the forest and domain in which you want to manage GPOs.

  2. In the details pane, click the AGPM Server tab:

    • If the options on the AGPM Server tab are unavailable, they have been centrally configured by an AGPM Administrator.

    • If the options on the AGPM Server tab are available, type the fully-qualified computer name for the AGPM Server (for example, and the port on which the AGPM Service listens (by default, port 4600). Click Apply, then click Yes to confirm.

Additional considerations

  • The AGPM Servers selected determine which GPOs are displayed on the Contents tab and to what location the Domain Delegation tab settings are applied. If not centrally managed through the Administrative template, each Group Policy administrator must configure this setting to point to the AGPM Server for the domain.
