Group Policy client-side extensions and Users moving between Sites


maybe a stupid question, but I am looking to use Group Policy client-side extensions across the Branches of one of our Clients, mapping Drives and printers etc, which are unique to each Branch.  As such I was looking to apply the Group Policies to the Branch OUs.  There are however two Managers who often travel from Head Office to the Branches and need to use the local resources.  How is this accomplished if they are in the Head Office OU?  I am guessing some reference to the Subnet they login in from, but I am new to these.

Have you defined you're site's in Active Directory Site's and Services, and linked the appropiate subnets to these sites? In that case you have 2 options:
* You could link GPO's to those sites by opening Group Policy Management (gpmc), right click on sites, show sites. And finaly link the appropiate gpo to each site.
* You can create 1 policy with the prefrence to drive mappings and for each prefrence set an Item-level targeting (properties of the prefrence, tab Common, enable Item-level targeting and choose targeting.... Choose new item, site, and select the site you want this prefrence to apply to.

Good luck!
