Remove Assigned Applications from GPO

    Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    I have a scenario where someone once added Assigned Applications (Software Installation) to a GPO in our environment. "Uninstall this application when it falls out of the scope of management" is set to "Enabled".

    The GPO also contains other settings which are necessary for the clients to work correctly.

    Currently the very same application is added during the OSD Task Sequence (since we are actually running ConfigMgr) so we do not see any reason to keep the Assigned Application.

    My question is: What will the application behaviour be if I were to simply remove the Assigned Application settings from the GPO? I am not talking about changing the Security and/or WMI Filters, disabling and/or unlinking the GPO.

    I do not wish to have the application removed since it is crucial for the customer.

  • Hi David,

    as stated in this thread, you should uncheck the option first, wait for clients to download and apply updated GPO and then you can safely remove the application from the GPO.

    Please try it on ONE (or couple) client (using security filtering / DACL, for example) and proceed further only if the testing happens to be successful.

    Thank you, Kirill. This was exactly the information I was looking for because I know that I have seen different answers in the past as well.
