Come one, come all.... The Toronto Windows Server User Group meeting is just around the corner... The presentation is on Understanding Group Policy on Windows Server 2003 and should be a very useful and informative session for anyone who uses group policies.

The focus of the meeting is an in-depth look at Group Policy, a powerful management feature of Windows Server 2003 that enables IT administrators to automate one-to-many management of users and computers, thus simplifying administrative tasks and reducing IT costs. Through the use of Policy Settings, administrators can control desktops, software deployment, and software usage and security settings across an entire organization. As this is such a powerful feature, this session covers the full range of options within Group Policy, starting by highlighting differences from previous versions. We will look at design considerations for both security and management, and then look at deploying and managing Group Policy objects using the GPMC, deploying software, testing staging, filtering, and finally troubleshooting. With GPMC, policy-based management is even easier. Administrators can efficiently implement security settings, enforce IT policies, and distribute software consistently across a particular site, domain, or range of organizational units.

The only questions that remain and 'when and where?'
