Group Policy OU's
Im running windows server 2003 and Windows XP Pro clients. I have created an OU and created users in that OU. I have set a group policy on that OU and they all work just fine.
I now want to take 6 of the users from this OU and add additional Group Policies to them (keeping the original GP's)
I created another OU then placed a security group into it and added the 6 users as members, i then added the additional group policies to that OU expecting the original GP's and the additional GP's to apply when the users logged on....needless to say it didnt work...what am i doing wrong.:confused:
The user accounts must live within the OU. You have two options, make an OU within your original OU and move the users into that, linking your new GPO to just that OU, or make a completely separate OU, link the GPO to that Ou and then create and link a second GPO with the additonal settings.
Does that make sense?
Yes I think I get that, put an OU in an OU and link the original Gp's to it and add new gp's to it too..willthis work for windows 2000 server too (ie can i add the gp snapin to it)
forget last comment about snap in I meant GPMC and ive answered it myself. thank you so much
