Lesson 10

slide39

You Learned

  • Application of group policies can be filtered by using Block Policy Inheritance, No Override, permissions, and WMI filters.
  • WMI filters allow administrative control over group policy implementation based on criteria defined in the filter. After evaluation, all filter criteria must return a value of true for the policy to be applied. Any criteria that return a value of false after evaluation will prevent the policy from being applied.

Lesson 10

slide40

You Learned (cont.)

  • Only one WMI filter can be applied to each GPO.
  • GPMC can be used to manage all aspects of Group Policy, including the following: creation, linking, editing, reporting, modeling, backup, restore, copying, importing, and scripting.
  • Determining effective group policies can be accomplished using RSoP, GPMC, or GPResult.

Lesson 10

slide41

You Learned (cont.)

  • RSoP is an MMC snap-in that has two modes: Planning and Logging. Planning mode allows administrators to simulate policy settings prior to their deployment. Logging mode reports on the results of existing policies.

Lesson 10

slide42

You Learned (cont.)

  • Delegating administrative control of Group Policy management tasks is an important feature when planning a decentralized administrative approach. GPMC is a comprehensive tool that simplifies delegation of all aspects of Group Policy management.
