  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    It sounds like you have a filter turned on.  Refer to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/949360 for a resolution.  Below is a copy/paste verbatim from that KB article (article says 2008 but this can happen on 2012 also.) 

    • You run the Group Policy Management Console (Gpmc.msc) on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008.
    • You open the Group Policy Management Editor to edit a Group Policy object (GPO).
    • You right-click the Administrative Templates item, and then you click Filter Options.
    • You click to select the Enable Requirements Filters check box, you select any platform in the list, and then you click OK to apply the setting.

    In this scenario, some templates in the Administrative Templates item are missing. If you right-click the Administrative Templates item and then clear the Filter On menu, these templates reappear. 

    Best Regards,

    Alvin Wang

  • Hi,

    I recommend you check the following thread and article before further actions:

    No Administrative Templates node in Group Policy Editor - Windows 7 x64 with RSAT client, Windows 2003 SP2 DC

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/61dcd25d-fce6-44fd-a4cb-63227be97698/no-administrative-templates-node-in-group-policy-editor-windows-7-x64-with-rsat-client-windows?forum=winserverGP

    Some templates are missing in the Administrative Templates item after you enable a filter option by using the Group Policy Management Editor window on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008
