We have some computers that we want to apply the same policies to all users. Some of the policy settings we need are only found under the User Configuration however. How can we accomplish this?
There is a feature called Group Policy Loopback Policy Processing which accomplishes this. Loopback Processing allows you to apply all GPO settings from both the computer AND user side and enforce those settings for all users no matter who they are. Jeremy discusses this in great detail in Chapter 4 of the book, and has lessons on this in his Group Policy Training Class.
The GPanswers.com forum is closed now (thanks, spammers!)
But we encourage you to join us at LinkedIn in the “GPO Stuff” group.
Jeremy is regular there, and there is a reasonable system to prevent junk posts.
In all, we think it’s the right place to go for Group Policy-specific questions.
It’s a private group, but just JOIN it, and the owner should approve your request.
See you there !
