CSI Tech Talk  Webinar Group Policy Tools and Tips – Recording Available

GPOScott Quimby provides continues his discussion of Microsoft Group Policy.  He will focus on a couple of important aspects of Group Policy:

  • Group Policy Modeling - How to know what is supposed to happen to a specific user on a specific computer and also know what policy is controlling the behavior.
  • Resultant Set of Policies (RSOP) - How to know what actually did or did not happen on a specific computer with an actual user that logged into that computer - regardless of what Group Policy Modeling said was supposed to happen.
  • Group Policy Objects vs. Group Policy Preferences - How to know when to use each and what they are used for.
  • ADM vs. ADMx files - What do they do?  Which are old and which are new?  Can you use both?
  • Group Policy Order of Precedence - How to get policies to run in the order you want (i.e. if a user is a member of teachers, they get a specific policy, but if they are also a member of lead teacher, they get a different policy that partially trumps the basic teacher policy).
  • Central Policy Store- What is it?  Where is it?  Why do I care?
  • The mysteries of Internet Explorer Maintenance - IE management is confusing.   There are GPOs that say they work and don't (by design).   How to know what to do and where to do it.
