    msi install - group policy

    Just a quick question, I am looking at setting up some software to install via the GPO, I have a set of instrtuctions but not sure where to creat the new GPO. I want to create an OU so I can add specific computers into it while I test it ou. Do I just right click the balby.local root and create a new OU then create a GPO on this new OU, then any computers placed in the new container will have the MSI GPO applied to them? I've got all the details to create the GPO etc just trying to confirm the best way to start. Sorry it these seem simple questions!

    I've added a screen grap of the AD just so you can see what I already have in case itr makes any of my ramblings any clearer.

    You can create the OU wherever you like - it just makes it easier to manage if you place it somewhere that makes logical sense. Directly under the root would be fine though, yeah.

    Creating a test OU is a good idea, then when you confirm it as working you can link the GPO into the other OUs where you want it applied.

    You can put multiple installs under one GPO, but it's better practice to create a new one for each application - much easier to manage.

    Thanks, that clears it up. Just needed some one to confirm I was going in the right direction.
