Hi,
I want to deploy a certificate to all computers in the builtin-group "Computers" in AD, but I cannot see this group in Group Policy Management? Of course I can link in the policy on the top-level but I do not want to do this because then ALL groups will use the policy. Anyone who knows why the Computers-group is not available?

Because it's not an OU it's a container (not sure why).  Just create another OU - for example, "Workstations" and put the systems in there.  Then apply your policy to that.
