Hi, i created my GPO's and named it RDS, i want those gpo's applied to a single computer only.

I need some help, to create the OU  and apply the GPO only to this OU...

I tried to create a OU, add the computer to this OU, but policies were not applied.

    Accepted Solution

    Create the OU, put the computer in the OU, right click on the OU and select LINK POLICY HERE

    You are ONLY USING COMPUTER policies in the policy arent you? Not USER POLICIES?

    should i create the OU in the GPMC or in the Active Directory Users and Computers?
    I m only using computer policies of course..

    Create the OU in AD. when you apply the GPO through GPMC, make sure that computer is in the GPO scope

    well, the answer was a mix on both replies.
    user policies being applied to computers and ou in the wrong places.
    still crawling on the GPO's.
