  • How to define which user group runs GPO

    Hi all..

    Probably a newbie question here, but I'm just learning server 2003..

    Using the group policy management, I've creat a new object under Group Policy Objects (The one that disables writing to USB drives).

    How, or where do I determine which user groups this affects?

    Thanks
    David

      Unfortunately Icouldn't find fromthat document what I needed.. What I'm attempting to do, is I have a Sales user group.. I'm trying to understand how I apply the new template that I just made to apply to them only.

      Thanks

        here in the forum you can find allot of information... i found something that maybe help you its not exactly what your are looking for but maybe if you read it a part of it will help you to understand more about GPO's and get you to your solution

        http://petri.com/a_word_about_workin...pos_and_ts.htm


        here a small part from it

        An important note about GPO Filtering: You're not supposed to use the filtering option as your MAIN method of choosing who's going to get a GPO and who's not. You're supposed to work with OUs and use the natural effect of inheritance to determine who's getting the GPO and who's not. Filtering, although very useful, can turn out into an administrative headache, so do NOT rely on it, except when needed, such as when you need to filter out one or two single users from 1000 users, and these 2 users cannot be moved from that OU because of other reasons.

        and use GPMC http://petri.com/download_gpmc.htm
        Purpose of GPMC
        GPMC is designed to simplify the management of Group Policy by providing a single place for managing core aspects of Group Policy. You can think of the GPMC as a one-stop resource for managing your Group Policy needs.

          Yaniv. That was super helpfule.. Thanks a ton..

          I do have a follow up question, if I might..

          The DC controls all DNS and DHCP. Can I have the GPO apply to any users that do not logon to the domain, but log onto our network for internet connectivity?

          Thanks
          David

            GPO's are only for domain members... they dont apply do non members... but... you can do a filtering on your internet gateway... URL filtering... or available only for domain members etc... but you cant apply GPO to non members...
