Group Policy for Beginners guide from Microsoft

Microsoft has released a guide Group Policy for Beginners that provides an overview of what you can do with Group Policy. This guide is intended for Group Policy novices.

Group Policy is simply the easiest way to reach out and configure computer and user settings on networks based on Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). The essential features are easy to use in simple scenarios, which are more common.

This white paper is an introduction to Group Policy. It first provides an overview of what you can do with Group Policy, and then it describes essential concepts that you must know. For example, what is a Group Policy object (GPO)? What does inheritance mean?

This white paper also provides step-by-step instructions, with plenty of screenshots, for the most common Group Policy tasks.

The requirements for using Group Policy and following the instructions as contained in this guide includes;
– The network must be based on AD DS (that is, at least one server must have the AD DS role installed).

– Computers that you want to manage must be joined to the domain, and users that you want to manage must use domain credentials to log on to their computers.

– You must have permission to edit Group Policy in the domain.
