Install: Does Application Manager need to be installed on Domain Controller (DC)?

No. Therefore, PolicyPak Application Manager is NOT installed on DCs.

Let’s do a quick run through of the components of PolicyPak and where they’re installed:

  • PolicyPak Admin Console MSI: Install this on YOUR management station, usually Windows 7. As a rule of thumb, install this anywhere you have and use the GPMC regularly.
  • PolicyPak CSE MSI: Install this on the machines you want to manage using PolicyPak Application Manager. Usually end-user computers, Citrix / TS machines, or anything that users actually log on to or use.
  • PolicyPak Paks: These are COPIED in one of three places:

So, nothing is EVER installed on DCs. And nothing is ever “running” on DCs.
