I created a Security template in 2k, now how do I apply it to an OU ?   The book is foggy as the dirt on this.

Create a Group Policy and link it to that OU.  Once the policy is created, Edit it and then expand out Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings.  Right Click on Security Settings and select "Import Policy"  From there browse out to where your policy is.

I have tried that.  I go into a group policy ou and can not "attach" it to anything in Aduc

BrianIT ManagerCommented:
You must create a new group policy and then edit that policy with the steps above.  Does it allow you to create new group policies?

I want to apply a Security template to domain controllers.  I have tried what you have suggested and it is not making it for me.

bitmechanicAuthor Commented:
You have been so patient and I do want to thank you for that.  Yes it does permit me to create a group policy.   That is part of what frustrates me about this.

BrianIT ManagerCommented:
Good to hear you can at least create the policy.  Just to confirm you do have the security template already created correct?

What happens when you edit the policy and expand out Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings then Right Click on Security Settings and select "Import Policy"  From there browse out to where your policy is.

Where is that process not working for you?

No problem on the patient thing...these things take time.
