GPO Link Changes
Link changes to a "Group Policy object" will enhance or reduce the scope of the GPO. A link change implies that an object that was linked to a GPO was removed or a new object was added. This change needs to be supervised as an unmonitored link removal from the GPO means - policy restrictions that were once enforced on linked objects was removed and this could result configurations of one GPO being replicated across other OUs or Sites. This is an unexpected behavior and stern action must be taken against. ADAudit Plus provides detailed reports on all links added or removed to Group Policy objects and helps in the necessary corrective / remedial procedures.
