Applies To: Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

The Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) stores Starter GPOs in a folder named StarterGPOs, located on the shared sysvol folder found on domain controllers.

GPMC searches for this folder when you click Starter GPOs in the user interface. When the folder does not exist, GPMC displays a Create Starter GPOs Folder button. Click Create Starter GPOs Folder to create the Starter GPOs storage location.
