  • How to exclude an user/group from a Group Policy

    I have applied an IP Security Policy in Computer Configuration for a certain
    OU. The manager wants all the PC's in this department not to be able to
    access the internet. The policy implemented allows intranet access but
    restricts internet acces. The policy works great, but I am stuck trying to
    figure out how to exclude IT administrators from having the policy applied to
    them if they log onto any of those PC's. Obviously we want to be able to
    troubleshoot the PC's and not be restricted from browsing the internet. I've
    tried adding our IT group in the security tab of the policy and then checking
    the Deny "Apply Group Policy" and played with the restricted groups policy
    as well. Neither have worked for me. Please advise.

        Does the IT staff have XP workstations? If so you could have them use RDC and then connect to the Internet from their own PC.
