Hi all,

Quick question regarding group policy.

I have a WSUS_Test OU setup with computers added. Its under our computers OU. I've had test computers added and all tests have been successful. Whats the best way to push this policy across all computers on the domain?

Open up Group Policy Management Console > Find the OU your domain computers are in > right-click and click on 'Link and existing GPO' > choose your new policy

That should do it.

No it shouldn't. What other policies do you have that would possibly conflict?
