Group Policy Problem
Posted on 2006-03-22
I have a group policy problem.....scenario:
1) Created several organization units in the AD to group users together for certain logon scripts.....no problem.
2) Created a group policy and applied it to the various organizational units.....again no problems
This policy is the new default domain policy. It contains settings for the Windows XP firewall and desktop screen saver.
Screen saver settings enforce the time until screensaver kicks in and forces password unlock of screen saver.
Here is the problem.....There is a set of 4 PCs which must have the screen saver timer increased from 17 minutes to 90 minutes. So, I have created another organizational unit and put the users which utilized those PCs into this new organization unit. I took the my default domain policy, maded the timer changes and saved it as a different name.
Applied the different name to the organizational unit.
Well, obviously I do not know what I am doing, since it overlaid my original default domain policy for every OU.
All PCs are now at the different screen saver time level.
Question.....even though I saved the policy (mmc console?) as different name, it still was the original site default domain policy. How do I save it as a different name.....a really different policy?
Please advise. thanks.
BTW, I am using the Group Policy Management Console, I downloaded from Microsoft.
