I have created a group policy object to disable removable media.  I want to apply this policy to all users on the SBS 2011 box except for a couple of users.  What's the best way to do that without breaking the SBS Console?

Hey!

Sorry for my bad English.

My approach would be:
- create a new security group in SBS console (but you can create one manually also, it won't break the console)
- add the users you wish to the group
- and would assign the GPO to that group only

And that is it.

Best regards, Jernej

NOTE: If you prefer to set these restrictions on a per-user basis instead of computer-wide, then use the Group Policy path \User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Removable Storage Access.
