Hi @Fahrid95,

The administrative templates you've linked also apply & work for Windows Server 2016, if you want the latest available administrative templates you can find them over here:
Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 10 May 2021 Update (21H1)

If you use a central store to manage your administrative templates (.admx) you can follow the steps over here:

The Central Store
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/windows-client/group-policy/create-and-manage-central-store#the-central-store

If you don't use a central store, you can follow the steps over here:

Updating the Administrative Templates files
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/troubleshoot/windows-client/group-policy/create-and-manage-central-store#updating-the-administrative-templates-files

Note: These links are found under the "Related Resources" section on your download link.

In addition to LeonLaude’s information, for how to check if you use Central Store or not, you can check based on the similar case.

You'll find these in the download link I provided here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/103124
(These are the latest ones available)

When you install the .msi file, you should find all .admx files over here:

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Group Policy\Windows 10 May 2021 Update (21H1)\PolicyDefinitions

There was another issue where I am not able to place the files under C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions and I do not use any Central store. It a workgroup server.

can you provide some update here, sorry for my english.

Thanks
