It's not cookie cutter. For example, you can use Group Policy to give everyone a particular screen saver, assign network printers, and change the title bar of internet explorer.

Just make sure the tail doesn't wag the dog. Identify an issue that you want to correct, and then find the appropriate GPO Setting.

Thanks,
S.

How long is a piece of string?

What exactly are you trying to achieve with group policy? GPOs can achieve pretty much anything you need them to so you're asking a very open ended question here.

It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

Microsoft has release a guide for Server 2008 R2.

You can find it here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754948(WS.10).aspx

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

so,

those things/setting i am doing on individual machines can be achieved one by one with GPO.

example : same local administrator password for all machines to "abc@123" using GPO.

Cheers,

I would make you GPO changes one at a time. Run a GPUpdate on the workstation with the enforced GPO and test the functionality. This will allow you to see each change in action without worrying about which policy had which effect.
