Active Directory, Group Policy Objects

For OU Administrators: This page contains information on Active Directory groups and Group Policy Objects (GPOs).

For an overview, please view the Microsoft documentation on GPOs.

If you want to request that one or more GPO(s) should be created, send a request to Include:

  • The name of the OU that the GPO(s) should apply to
  • The name of an AD group that will have edit rights over the GPO(s).

After the GPO is created, you will need to rename it, edit it with the Group Policy Management Console, and link it to your OU.
