Basic GPO questions
Posted on 2008-11-13
Hello AD experts!
I was hoping someone could help me out with some basic GPO questions I had...
i) From what I understand, there are two types of Group Policies; User Config and Computer Config. User config is settings that are centred around the user, and can be applied to the OU that the specificed users reside in
ii) Computer config relate to settings for the machine, and are applied to the OU the target computer resides in
iii) If you want to apply a User Config for specificed target machines (e.g. a specific OU), you use LoopBack
iv) Is it possible to have one GPO that contains both User Config and Computer Config? If so, how would you apply it?
v) A User Config GPO cannot be applied to a computer OU (unless loopback is set). Likewise, a Computer Config OU cannot be set for a user OU
vi) What is GPO linking?
