    Re: gpo from ou on users folder

    The users container is at the domain level, so you will need to apply the gpo to the domain
    Alternatively create an OU for the users, move them from the users container into the OU and then apply the GPO to the OU

    IMHO the second is preferable as it will not have potentially side effects on the whole domain

        Dont use the default container for "users". Policies do not apply to default containers (users and computers) create a fresh OU and link the GPO to that.

          To clarify: Any GPO linked at the Site or Domain level is applied to the default containers (Computers and Users containers).

            If i move computer accounts from the default ou computers to the new ou 'Government computers' i won't make problems? On ou computers i don't have gpo.

              Thats because you cant apply policies to the default containers. They will only inherit what is specified in the default domain policy which affects all OU's globally. Whatever policies you have linked to your "Government" OU and whatever policies are inherited from OU's above or at domain level are that which will apply.
