  • Correct way for applying GPO.

    I am using Login script for Mapping drive at clinet side.In Windows Server 2003 I use GPO and write script in a bat file.


    NET USE x: \\SERVER_NAME\Sahre Folder Name /PERSISTENT:NO

    There are five OU and in each OU there are 10 users. For adding the bat file I use the following steps.

    Active Directrory Users and Computers .....>Right Click Domain Name ......>Properties......>Group Policy.....> Default Domain Policy...>Edit...User Configuration.....>Windows Settings......>Script.....>Login

    Please guide me that is it the correct way

    1- The above mentioned steps but under Group Policy I shall press "NEW" give it a name "Mapped Drive " and then press edit.

    or

    2- Right Click on each OU Properties......>Group Policy.....> Default Domain Policy.

    Please guide me the professional way .

    thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    It is good practice to leave the Default domain policy intact for troubleshooting purposes.
    If you want the same policy (ie logon script) to apply to all the users, then create a new GPO and link it to the domain. Otherwise If you need specific policies for different OU just create new GPO and link them to that OU.

        If you have Group Policy Management Console installed, run it, right click on your domain and select "create and link a GPO here"
