Registered status

You can quickly see the status of registered GPOs, starter GPOs, scripts, DSC scripts, WMI filters, sites, domains, and OUs. The objects will either be available for check out, already checked out, or checked in and awaiting approval to be committed to the enterprise. The options available to you at each state will depend on your specific role and permission. Registered objects will be in one of the following states:




Checked Out

Pending Approval

Pending Deployment

Removing registered objects

If you no longer want the object to be available for changes, you can remove it from the Version Control system, as long as you have been granted the Unregister right. Unregistering version-controlled objects is now recursive, unless you select the lower-level objects individually.

Expand the Version Control Root node and the required container.

Unregistering GPOs using the GPMC Extension is not recursive. If you want to unregister all child objects, use the GPOADmin console.

Select the Group Policy Objects node and then select the GPO.
Click Register or right click and select Unregister.

Viewing the live environment

As the administrator, you may want to allow users to see the live environment from within the GPOADmin console. This will, for example, enable you to delegate GPO, OU, or SOM object registration (and recursive registration) to specific users in your organization.

However, you may not want all domains within the live environment to be displayed to all users. Through the live environment properties you can also restrict which domains will display, be included in reports, and be available within the object creation wizard.

Right-click the Live Environment node and select Properties.
Right-click the Live Environment node and select Properties.
