Group Policy deny or exclude

I have a GPO setup which has close to 100 settings for User node.  I want to apply the same gpo, but minus 2 settings.  What is the most efficient way of doing so.... another GPO with security filtering, or create another OU with the 2 settings exluded... or other ideas are welcome.

Unfortunately you can't deny the application of GPOs at the per-setting level (though if wishing could make it so...), you can only do so for an entire Group Policy Object.

To do what you're describing, you'll need to copy the existing GPO to a new GPO, make the changes you want to the new GPO and then maintain the two separate GPOs separately.  :-(

(I wish I had better news for you.)

Create two seperate GPO's applied to the same OU.  Use security filtering to allow/deny the the gpo with the two settings...to whatever user/group you like.

Or you can create a seperate OU, underneath the other, and block inheritance.

Group policy is very granular...several ways to do the same thing.
