Confused by OU & GPO
Posted on 2015-02-02
I have an OU containing the users and an OU for the computers.
I wish to test on a particular computer so I have created a testing OU containing the test computer.
I have created a GPO that contains both computer (data sources) & user settings (drive mappings). This GPO I have linked to my users OU and my computers OU.
I wish to create a trial GPO with both computer and user settings. I would imagine that I would link this trail GPO to my users OU and my testing OU.
This means that in summary:
Both GPOs will be linked to my users OU
Main GPO will be linked to my computers OU
Trail GPO will be linked to my testing GPO
As both Main & Trail GPO are linked to my users OU how will windows ensure that when user X logs in on a production (non testing pc) on ly the main GPO is applied?
I am worried my testing GPO will be applied to all users are it is linked to the same users OU as my main GPO.
