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.

Working with controlled objects (version control root)

Creating a custom container hierarchy

You can organize registered objects into a user-defined hierarchy under the Version Control Root container.

Each container has its own “security descriptor” in which trustees can be delegated roles to define their access to the contained objects. For more information see Configuring role-based delegation .

Once you have the containers created, you can easily move and copy objects to other containers within the same domain.

Expand the treeview and select the Version Control Root or subcontainer.
Right-click and select New | Container.
