Summary

In this chapter, we examined Active Directory’s solution to a common headache for many systems administrators: policy settings. Specifically, we discussed topics that covered Group Policy.

We covered the fundamentals of Group Policy including its fundamental purpose. You can use Group Policy to enforce granular permissions for users in an Active Directory environment. Group policies can restrict and modify the actions allowed for users and computers within the Active Directory environment.

Also group policies can restrict and modify the actions that are allowed for users and computers within the Active Directory environment. Certain Group Policy settings may apply to users, computers, or both. Computer settings affect all users who access the machines to which the policy applies. User settings affect users, regardless of which machines they log on to.
