Group Policy Setup Question - Drive Maps

02/26/2018 594 views


I am attempting to test a fix for an issue pertaining to group policy and the drive maps being set to "Replace" instead of "Update".

The problem is, I cannot make this change for every user in this OU without testing it out first.

What would be the ideal way to create a test OU which I can set the Drive Maps to Update, and still retain the other settings which are currently in this group via Group Policy Management?

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank You,

When I need to do something similar to what you are asking, I'll create a sub OU inside the OU that the GPO will eventually be applied to.  Link the testing GPO to that sub OU and you can move a few PCs in there to test it.  This will retain all the GPOs that applied to them in the parent OU (Unless you block inheritance, which I would not recommend for your testing)

Hopefully that will help you out.
