Group Policy Management exclusion of Autolock screen policy to users loging in to conference room PC.

Dear Experts:

I need to exclude from a auto lock policy users that login to the conference room desktop or workstation.

I can put the PCs on their own active directory container. That is easy. How to make it so that every user that connects to that workstation does not get that policy applied to them? I take is in the Group Policy inheritance.

Thanks! M

In GPMC console, click on the Delegation tab for the policy. Click on the Advanced button, add the Computer object to the ACL list and in the permissions select Deny for 'Apply Group Policy' and it will no longer apply those settings to that PC.
Let me ask in a diffrent way, first I don't know a way (doesn't make much sense) , but how will the server that the user is connected va confrence room? is there any network related characteristics you can rely on?

Because this is a user side policy and you are wanting to apply it to a set of computers, you will need to use Loopback Policy Processing.
