Group Policy - Applying User GPO Only When Logging Onto Specific Computers
Posted on 2013-05-21
Good Afternoon All -
I've got a unique situation where I need to apply a user GPO to a few users - but - it only needs to be applied when they are logging into a specific few machines. I tried loopback processing, but couldn't get it to work. Below are the details.
I have 12 training workstations - each with a separate dedicated user. These new training workstations will basically act as terminal clients as I've been asked to make them boot to Windows, immediatly load VMWare View Client, and not allow users to be able to do anything else locally.
I have gotten it all set up and working, but when I connect to the VMWare Host, (windows), the same user policy is still being applied. I only want it to apply to the computers acting as clients.
- Training Workstations
- Training Users
- Training VMs
- Training User Lock Down (GPO #1) - Applied to "Training Users"
- Training Computer Lock Down (GPO #2) - Applied to "Training Workstations"
- Currently no GPO (inherits what's needed) - Training VMs
Each have desktop and mostly GUI settings enabled. I tried enabling "User Group Policy loopback processing mode" and setting it to "Replace," but it didn't work.
Any Suggestions? Thanks!
