i am new to this GPO and hope someone can answer to this question.
in an active directory enviroment the group policy work like
local GPO-Site-domain-OU.
so if we setup GPO on OU then that the policy take effect.

how do we set the local GPO if we have 100 servers?
my understanding is that put all 100 servers in an OU and apply a GPO to that OU instead of going to each server and setting up local GPO?
Am i correct on ths?

You do not need to set the local GPO if you are using OU level.

You are correct in saying that all relevant servers need to put into an OU and then the GPO assigned to the same OU. You need to make sure you put all the settings in the 'computer configuration' part of the GPO not the 'user configuration'.
