I want to add a user to more than one group policy in Windows 2000, does anyone know how to do this?

I have checked my books but can't seem to find the answer, but I do remember doing this on my courses.

Thank you

    Group Policies are typically added to OUs, not individual users.

    THAT said, you can create multiple policies for each OU, but note a single GPO with thirty changes runs faster than thirry GPOs with one change each.

    Hi happyal27,

    create a sub OU and put the user in it with the policy you want to apply, that way it gets sob OU pol then OU POL as well
