Chapter 5. Managing Group Policy application and infrastructure

There is far more to managing Group Policy than knowing the location of specific policy items. After your environment has more than a couple of Group Policy Objects (GPOs), you have to start thinking about issues such as how they apply, who can edit them, what to do if substantive changes in policy need to be rolled back, and how you can track changes in Group Policy over time. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to back up, restore, import, and export GPOs. You’ll learn how to delegate the process of editing and applying GPOs, and how to resolve configuration problems related to the application of Group Policy.
