That's because the built-in "Authenticated Users" group includes
computer objects. The computer object itself (NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM) is a
user just like any other as far as Active Directory is concerned.

Subject: [gptalk] computers GPO filtered according to users group

Hi,

Group Policies applies to users or to computers depending on two
criteria :

1. the location in the Active Director (OU, ...). : linking to a
container.
2. Security filtering.

And till today, I believed that computer parameters can only be applied
to
computers and that user parameters can only be applied to users : could
you
confirm ? (exception : loopback).

Or the following situation is working : WSUS parameters (in computer
configuration) linked to an OU containing only computers (this is ok...)
but
the security filtering is applied to a group of users : authenticated
users...
And not to a group of computers.

I don't understant how it can work this way.

Thanks for your help.

Annick
