Al Solorzano recently posted a nice article on Group Policy Preferences over here. If you’re not familiar with Group Policy Preferences, it’s the technology that Microsoft acquired from Desktop Standard. GPP is a nice way of extending management reach to registry settings that were previously not able to be managed by Group Policy (at least not without those PITA Administrative Templates anyway). There’s also some powerful capabilities for filtering that are largely lacking from Group Policy. While out at Citrix Synergy a little over a week ago, I had the pleasure of some great conversation with Al at a group dinner outing. Al is extremely knowledgable about a variety of technologies and I highly recommend following his blog (if you don’t already). Al’s blog can be found here.
