    Possible to group Group Policy Objects?

    Hi,

    We have five different sites over a WAN. All sites connect to the same domain.

    Where we push software etc out to sites from local servers we need a policy for each task for each site.

    This means that the list of policies in the 'Group Policy Objects' folder in the GPO management is huge. Current count is 43 + 5 more to come for wsus.

    I cant see any way when i had a look but is there any way to add folders inside the group policy object section?

    Many thanks,

    Dan

    Don't think so but I do it by naming convention;

    Software - global - <name>
    Software - Mathis - <name>
    Workstations - ...
    Servers - ....
    Users - pupils - ...
    Users - staff - ...
    Etc

    That way everything is grouped anyway

    Not in any way helpful for you, but the domain I'm part of... Group Policy Objects, current count 1333 (Of which I'm to blame for 134)... folders would be lovely
