Hi Jack,


If you want all of your computers to get the policy, you could just link it
at the domain level. or are there additional OU's that you do not want to
get it?

Subject: [gptalk] Moving Test Policies into Production




I am trying to identify a good method of moving group policies from a
testing phase, to a production mode.  I have 50 OU's (offices) and each has
a "computer" OU.  I have a single GPO called "WiFi Settings" that all 50 are
linked to.  

I also have a "Test" OU where I am testing a revised policy called "WiFi2
Settings".  Now that I am done testing the revised policy, and rather than
link the "WiFi2 Settings" GPO to all 50 production OU's, can I simply
disable the link to "WiFi Settings", rename it to "WiFi Old", and rename
"WiFi2 Settings" to "WiFi Settings"?  By the way, this GPO runs a script so
there are files involved.

By renaming the original GPO to "old", and renaming the new one to name all
50 OU's were originally linked to, will that cause any problems, or is there
better process?

Thank you,
