Removing persistent registry settings

Some GPO settings create registry entries when they are processed. When these settings are removed and the policy is processed, their corresponding registry entries may not be removed from client computers.

GPOADmin notifies you when potentially persistent registry values exist and allows you to remove them.

Click the Registry Cleanup button.

Editing WMI filters

Expand the Version Control Root and the required container. Select the WMI filter you want to edit within the version control container node in which it exists.

For information on creating WMI filters, see Creating WMI filters .

Editing scripts

Expand the Version Control Root and the required container. Select the script you want to edit within the version control container node in which it exists.

Linking GPOs

Once GPOs have been created and configured, they must be linked to the appropriate sites, domain, or OU. Before you can link a GPO, you must register and check out the site, domain, or OU. For information on registering Scopes of Management, see Registering objects .

Users with the Link right can link a single GPO with numerous sites, domains, or OUs and link multiple GPOs to a site, domain, or OU. (For more information on setting permissions, see Configuring role-based delegation .)

If you link more than one GPO, you must pay attention to their order. The first GPO has the highest precedence because it is processed last. The Link Report and Group Policy Results Report can help you understand the inheritance structure of your group policies.

NOTE: The policies are applied according to the hierarchical structure of Active Directory®. You can change the order in which the GPO is applied through the provided arrows.

By default, GPOs affect all users and computers contained within a linked site, domain, or OU. To refine the application of a GPO, see Editing GPOs .

Click New Link to add another GPO.
Enable Block Inheritance if required.
In the right pane, ensure that the Add check box is selected for the GPOs you want to link.

You can also rollback pre-existing links between GPOs and sites, domains, and OUs when restoring GPOs. For information, see Restoring links to a previous version and Checking compliance .
