Group policy for users to add in particular group from particular OU

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am having a particular application user created in their specific application OU. Now I want all user to be added into one of the universal group and that group should be having membership of local administrator on specific application servers(We have specific OU created for servers on application basis). for second part I know that the group needs to be added in restricted access. But how should we automate the first part via group policy such that if a new user is created and moved to the specific OU it gets automatically membership of specific universal/domain local group.

    Yes.

     From an administration point of view, there's no difference between
    security and distribution group - simply different group type upon
    creation and update.
