Applying a users only GPO to a specific server as opposed to applying the GPO to the entire users OU in AD...
Freitag, 7. Dezember 2012 18:54This might be a stupid question so bear with me, but I am creating a new user specific GPO that I want to apply to users using a specific server, how can I do this and have it apply without having to apply the GPO to the entire users OU in AD? Thanks a lot.

depending on the settings you are setting (either User-Config or Computer-Config), and whether you are linking the GPO to the OU containing the server, or the OU containing the users, you may be able to use security filtering on the GPO, or, you may need to use Loopback Processing.
You may need to move the server into a new OU if you intend to use Loopback Processing.
these are just some suggestions for you to consider, and then research, and of course, test :)

Use security filtering for applying a GPO for a specific user/computer.

Samstag, 8. Dezember 2012 16:26Thanks for the replies, really appreciate it. What I am trying to do exactly is apply user specific policies to our remote desktop server which I have within it's own OU. So when I apply this GPO to the OU/Computer, it has no affect. I will look into the aformentioned items and see what I can do. Thanks again

NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
