With AGPM, your GPOs are either controlled or uncontrolled. With controlled GPOs, you have offline copies of GPOs as well as live GPOs in production, and you have additional management options as discussed in this section. These additional options include:
Creating and using GPO templates
Controlling and importing GPOs
Creating, deploying, and deleting controlled GPOs
Labeling, restoring, and redeploying controlled GPOs
Checking out, editing, and checking in controlled GPOs
Tracking change history and generating reports
Irrespective of AGPM controls, there are certain tasks that you’ll use to manage your GPOs in the live production environment. These tasks are discussed in "Managing Your GPOs in Production" in Chapter 3.
