    GPO lock down for students

    Hi Guys

    we are just setting up our gpo's for the new network 2008 server and xp clients. I was woundering if I could get a look at some other people's gpo to see if we covered the all the bases.

    thanks

    Hi Mark,

    We have broken our 2008 GPOs for students up into broad functional groups:

    Allowed/Denied programs
    Internet Explorer settings
    Desktop/Start Menu redirection
    BGInfo settings.

    This might not be the exact configuration as it stands now, haven't looked in a while, but you get the idea.

    We found this worked better and [for the most part] was easier to troubleshoot when things did not go exactly as planned.

    I will try to remember to post more detail tomorrow [very busy this summer hol]

  3. Thanks to DaveP from:

    Here are the GPOs my post from yesterday refers to.

    They still need some work but they seem to do the job most of the time. Hope they help [Had to zip them up as the site will not accept '.htm' files as uploads]
