All the machines have office on them but when each differnt user logs onto the machine it installs office again and again for each and every user ??? thanks for the info

Hi fessiambre,

change your assignment to computer so that the machine itself has the software not the user

either than or you can publish to the user but the above is a much better solution for what you are doing

Cheers!

assign to the machine instead of the user. Do you have to add the physical machine to the GPO or just in the GPO above the user config?

add it to a policy that effects the computers ie a different OU and put it under computer settings :)

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

you can if you want although its much more advisable to create a separate OU as then you can separate policies affecting just the computers

i ALWAYS keep them separate

just run a gpupdate /force first to prime the policy and then reboot - it can take a couple of reboots.....
