Group Policy, Application of User Configuration & Computer Configuration as they realte to User OU & Computer OU
Posted on 2006-04-10
I have two OUs
Employees - OU that contains all active employees
Workstations - OU that contains all active computers (Servers & laptops excluded)
I have two Security Groups
Employees - Global Security Group that contains all of the current employees
Workstations - Global Security Group that contains all of the active workstations in the Domain.
Have one GPO, 'Proxy Settings', which configures IE to use a proxy server and disables the end-users ability to change proxy settings in IE.
I would like to apply this policy to the Workstations OU, even though the GPO settings being used are in the 'User Configuration' section of GPO.
I do not want this policy applied based on the users membership in a security group. I only want this policy applied to the workstations
and all of the users that logon to these workstations.
Would I need to add all of my users and all of my workstations to the same security group and then use this security group in 'Security Filtering' for the GPO?
Or Am I out in left field?
