Is there any way to add an user to a Group Policy without specifying the location? RRS feed

  • Is there any way to add an user to a Group Policy without specifying the location?

    If I understood it properly, It seems that when you add an user using the Group Policy Manager Editor, it searches for the name and adds the location as a prefix of the name automatically. For example:

    My-Computer/MyUser or Workgroup/MyGroup

    I supose that it is not the same to add an user with the location specified for one place or another. For example, If MyUser has a prefix of My-Computer, the rules won't be applied for the Workgroup.

    Becuase of that, I was wondering if there is anyway to specify it for a general location. I mean, I would like to have the same as in the default setup, where there is only "Administrator" in the policies without any kind of prefix.

  • Hi,

    After my research, it seems that we cannot do like that. It seems made by design.

    Thank you for understanding.
