Advanced Group Policy Management Install

I will be installing AGPM in our environment and account to the install guides online you need to install the application under a domain admin account but for the service account you can you a least prividge approach and added the account to the Backup Operators and GP Creator groups..

If I am understand everything correctly one thing about the GP Creator GP is that is does not grant the user full access of already created GP but will on new GP's is this correct. If so with 100 GP's this will be a problem for me

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, that is correct. In a least privilege setup the AGPM service account will not necessarily have rights to take control and manage any GPO. I am in the same position as you. With hundred's of GPO's, it can be painful. It is easy to script though; just iterate through the GPO's you want to give the AGPM account permissions for and add its group in with rights (you can also just add the account itself in instead of a group).

Great Tip.. How can I dump all GP's my name to a file then have the script add the account needed to each GP?

Obviously the usual disclaimer. Test all scripts in a test lab before you unleash them upon your production environment :)
