I was excited to see Group Policy mentioned throughout The Vista Resource Kit that was released in April. Chapters 13 and 14 focus on managing the desktop and user data using Group Policy.

I thought it would be good to compile a list of currently available Group Policy reference books. If you know of any other Group Policy books, shoot us an email and we'll add it to the list.

Here's my list:

  • Windows Vista™ Resource Kit by Mitch Tulloch, Tony Northrup, Jerry Honeycutt with the MSWinVista Team, ISBN-10 0-7356-2283-3
  • Group Policy: Management, Troubleshooting, and Security: For Windows Vista , Windows 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000 (Mark Minasi Windows Administrator Library) (Paperback) by Jeremy Moskowitz, ISBN-10: 0470106425
  • Microsoft® Windows® Group Policy Guide by Darren Mar-Elia, Derek Melber, William Stanek, MS Group Policy Team, ISBN-10: 0-7356-2217-5
