Hello Everyone;

I would like to know if it is possible to set a group policy for a specific group rather than setting group policy on OU or a domain?

Thanks

You have to apply the policy to an ou, but you can have it only be effective for a group.

Yes you can. Modify the security (in the security tab) of the GPO.

Remove "authenticated users" from the list (or modify the security settings to just "read" (remove apply).
Add one group with settings "read" and "apply" for the group where GPO is being forced

Hope this helps.

In the group policy management console, if you click on the policy, ther is a security filtering section by group.

Policies are only applied on Local workstations, Sites, Domains or OUs. But you can create a policy and use group filtering. That's only way to achive that.
