More or fewer group policy objects?
Posted on 2009-05-06
Understanding there is not a black and white answer, in general terms is it preferable to structure group policy objects so that each one contains more rules, and so you end up with a group having fewer GPOs applied, or is it better to have more GPOs, each containing a more specific type of rules?
Conceptually I prefer the having more GPOs that have more specific purposes but I am wondering if there is any impact on performance, login time, odds of getting policies properly applied, etc. by one approach or the other.
From your experiences, which approach do you prefer?
