Group Policy

Active Directory Group Policy management

Group Policy in Active Directory (AD) helps IT administrators quickly manage AD users, computers, and groups. Traditionally, administrators had to rely on Active Directory Group Policy management tools such as the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) and Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) for AD and group policy management.

Managing Group Policy using just the native AD group policy management tools and PowerShell can be mundane and time-consuming. This is why it's essential to simplify AD and better execute Group Policy management.

ADManager Plus is a web-based Active Directory management and reporting tool that helps manage Group Policy Objects (GPOs) of multiple domains in just a few clicks. It also provides pre-built GPO reports that swiftly fetch GPO-related information.

Manage every aspect of Windows AD Group Policy easily by using this GPO management tool to:

  • Create a GPO and link it to any container at once.
  • Enable or disable GPOs or individual configuration settings (user/computer configurations).
  • Delete GPOs in bulk.
  • Create GPO links.
  • Enable, disable, or remove GPO links.
  • Enforce GPOs or remove their enforcement.
  • Block or unblock GPO inheritance for any domain or organizational unit (OU) in bulk.

Create GPOs and GPO links

Create GPOs

Create GPOs and link them to multiple OUs, domains, and sites at once in a single action, drastically minimizing the time and effort required to perform the same tasks using native Active Directory Group Policy editors like the GPMC. ADManager Plus allows you to link appropriate GPOs to relevant containers whenever needed. You can also copy the existing GPO links of domains or sites while creating new GPO links.

Manage GPOs and GPO links

Select multiple GPOs and GPO links from any node and perform the following Group Policy management actions instantly:

Edit GPOs

Edit GPO settings

Identify the administrative templates settings of the user and the computer configuration associated to the respective GPOs using the quick search, and edit the GPO settings in Active Directory.

Enable or disable GPOs

You can enable or disable GPOs completely or partially, that is, enable or disable either the user or computer configuration settings.

Using this feature, you can select multiple GPO links and enable or disable them instantly. This allows the administrators to easily control the status of GPO links according to their organization's policies.

Enforce GPOs or make GPOs unenforced

With ADManager Plus, you can invoke GPOs to easily enforce specific settings over others. You can also un-enforce the GPOs whenever needed.

Block or unblock GPO inheritance

By default, group policy settings are inherited from their parent objects. However, based on your needs, you can choose the required container and block inheritance. You can also unblock inheritance whenever needed.

Delete GPOs and GPO links

Delete GPOs and remove unwanted GPO links in bulk based on your requirements. Clean up GPOs with the help of predefined GPO reports, which make it easy to identify the unused and disabled GPOs and delete them in bulk.

ADManager Plus is an excellent Group Policy manager tool which also offers prepackaged GPO reports such as recently created GPOs, GPO-blocked inheritance containers, and more, which makes it easy to obtain GPO-related information instantly. Additionally, you can securely delegate Group Policy management to your help desk technicians.

Benefits of using ADManager Plus for Group Policy management:

  • Manage GPOs in bulk from a unified web-based console.
  • Locate administrative template settings easily using a quick search.
  • Delegate GPO management and obtain in-depth reports on GPOs.
  • Eliminate the need for PowerShell scripts.
