  • GPO link

    Ok I know this is a stupid question, but I don't know much about GPO implementation (yet) but I need to get this one solved quickly so I figured I would ask for some help. I just created a GPO for all my WSUS settings (just installed WSUS) how do I link it to my OU and have it override any settings in the other GPO's for what I have configured (only Windows Update stuff) Below is the screenshot of my GPO & My OU, the policy

    Re: GPO link

    Hi there,

    Your GPO "WSUS" is linked to the domain, so it will apply to everything below it excluding the OU where the inheritance is being blocked (unless you have configured it within there also)
    You could also disable the User Settings for this, as they are not required for WSUS.
    If WSUS itself is set-up, you may wish to check it is being picked up on a client.

    Hope this helps.

      Even though "Enforced" is set to "No"?

      What OU is the inheritance being blocked?

      What do you mean about disabling user settings?

        enforced, no means that any configuration is not being forced past an OU that is trying to block something if that makes sense!

        What OU is the inheritance being blocked?

        On second look, the domain is blocking inheritance as well as the OU "Kenesis" (cannot see exact spelling due to red line)

        What do you mean about disabling user settings?

        When a GPO is processed, two sets of configuration (user and computer) are checked. If none of the configuration has been altered in user or computer, you have the option to prevent it from running saving log on time.
        Hope this helps, more experienced help on it's way!

          Okay so I get my first question about Enforced makes sense now

          Also get the second question

          Third question I think you are saying to disable the User Settings portion of my WSUS GPO right? How do I do that?

          So basically GPO's are applied by hierarchy? From top to bottom?

            On the details tab at the bottom it says "GPO Status" You can change the options by clicking on the drop down button.

            GPO's are hieracle, yes. Default domain downwards to the local policy of the computer.

              How would I make this not apply to the server in my environment?

                By linking the GPO to the desired OU's. The domain controllers will be in their own, as should the member servers.
