Hi all,

I have a local group I created and added users to this group.

I now want to apply a local group policy to this user group.  The group does not appear in the list.

How can I make this group be compatible?

When you set up permissions for a GPO it gives Authenticated Users the permissions to read and apply the policy. The policy should apply be default.

Is the policy a Local policy or a Group policy, i.e. is is scoped to the one machine or created to apply to the domain structure?

(As a side note, MIcrosoft has done a dis-service by claiming Local Policy is part of group policy in their documentation. Local policies aren't GPOs in any function)

It was point less and useless and did not have half the features of an AD GPO.

I've always heard about it but never used it and now that I have, I see it was a waste of time ;)
