    Moving "naughty users" to a different proxy using Containers or groups?

    We have a limited number of smoothwall licenses so we decided to put our more challenging students on to it.
    For speed we created a new OU and changed the gpo that affected it to point items in it to smoothwall.

    Is this best practice or would we be better creating a group, naughty users, and then adding our challenging kids to this group?

    Thanks

    If your list of naughty users changes a lot, which I suspect it will if ours are anything to go by, it's probably better to have a group; instead of moving their location all the time.

    we have done the same - had to have OU and group in the end to lock everything down.
    Does not take a minute if you have OU's nested beneath your existing student containers.

    Cool

    We have done this and we use a group for it.

    If a student is in this group - no internet.
    Thankfully we have the support of Pastoral - so only they can authorise someone to be added or removed.
