Lab 25 Group Policies 2 and Powershell 2

We'll create a GPO that sets the password policy and sets certain restrictions on users. User folders will map to the home drive (H: or P: depending on what you set it to). Let's get started.

  1. We are going to use the users contained in the Organizational Unit called OU_Sales. If you don't have this setup, review Lab03.
  2. We are going to use the User's own shares here as well. If you don't have User shares setup refer to Lab04.
  3. Change the default domain group policy object and change the password policy to require passwords to be changed only after 1 year.
  4. Add a GPO for the "OU_Sales Team" and set the following:
    1. Set the background to a image of your choice.
    2. Redirect the Documents folder to the home directory. (i.e. redirect the documents folder to \\cptr230a\home$\%username%\Documents. When I went back to look at my settings it had updated it to be the following:

      1. FolderRedirectProperties.png

    3. Restrict users from bringing up the task manager.


Document the OU created in the appropriate page. Document the Group policy in an appropriate page.
