GPOADmin 5.13.5 - Getting Started Guide

Connect to the Version Control system

Because the application has been fully configured by the administrator, users connect to the Version Control system in the following manner:

1
Right-click the GPOADmin node and select Connect To.
2
Click New to create a new connection and enter the server name.
3
Select the Version Control server that you want to connect to and click Connect to connect with the current logged on user credentials or select Connect As to enter a new credentials (user name and password).
4
To save the credentials, select the Remember my password check box and click OK.

For more information about saving connections, see “Persisting Connections” in the GPOADmin User Guide.

Register a GPO

Initially all GPOs are unregistered. To add GPOs to the Version Control system, they must be registered.

1
Expand GPOADmin, the forest, Live Environment, and the Domain Controller. Select the Group Policy Objects, right-click a GPO in the right-hand pane, right-click and select Register.

Check out and edit GPOs

Before users can edit registered GPOs, the GPOs must be checked out.

The workflow is as follows:

Version information is updated in the system’s history when the GPO is checked back in. Only one person within the system can check out and work on any GPO at a given time.

Checking out a GPO for the first time creates a copy of the original GPO. The copy is an exact duplicate of the original GPO until it passes through the approval process.

1
Expand the Version Control Root and select the available GPO.
2
Click Launch Editor and make the required changes.
3
If required, select the Security tab and click Add or Remove to modify the current security filter. Enter or search for the required user, computer, or group, and click OK.
4
Click the Advanced button to select advanced permissions.
5
To add or remove a WMI filter, select the WMI Filter tab and choose a filter from the list of available WMI filters. Click OK.
1
Expand the Version Control Root node and select the checked out GPO.
