Active Directory GPO Management

IT administrators are entrusted with the task of creating and managing Active Directory security policies for seamless resource access. Administering policies and configuring settings for individual users and computers is a time-consuming affair. A Group Policy Object (GPO) eases policy management by offering the flexibility to apply policies to domains, OUs, or entire sites. GPOs also provide flexibility by allowing administrators to apply policies to an individual object or a set of objects within an OU in one go.

Whether they're using ADUC to create objects in Active Directory or GPMC to apply group policies, administrators using native AD tools will definitely face difficulties toggling between multiple consoles. Furthermore, GPMC only allows admins to apply group policies to one domain, OU, or site at a time. Native tools are clearly not the answer.

ADManager Plus is a comprehensive web-based solution for managing and automating AD tasks. With ADManager Plus, admins can create AD objects in bulk and apply GPOs to objects, all from the same window.

With an intuitive and centralized UI, ADManager Plus allows administrators to:

Create GPOs

Create GPOs

With GPMC, creating GPOs and linking them to AD objects is not a one-step process. Administrators need to create the GPO first and then link it to the corresponding objects, which is time-consuming. With ADManager Plus on the other hand, administrators can create the GPO and link it to multiple OUs or sites all at once from a single console.

Manage GPOs

Manage GPOs

ADManager Plus allows administrators to easily:

  • Edit GPOs
  • Enable or disable GPOs
  • Delete GPOs
Edit GPO settings

As a company's security plan evolves, administrators need to create new group policies to meet those new needs. When new policies are created and applied, administrators can choose to either delete the old policies permanently or disable them. Using ADManager Plus, administrators can perform both these actions with ease. ADManager Plus' GPO management feature helps administrators edit the administrative template settings for both user and computer configuration of GPOs. And unlike GPMC, ADManager Plus lets administrators perform management actions on multiple GPOs at once, thus saving time and effort.

Link GPOs

Administrators generally create group policies to achieve a particular result. For example, administrators might create a policy that restricts users and computers in particular domains, sites, or OUs from accessing certain applications. With ADManager Plus, administrators can easily link a GPO to particular domains, sites, or OUs.

Configuring a GPO in a larger organization where there are hundreds of GPOs and OUs is a daunting task. However, ADManager Plus makes this task easy by allowing administrators to configure GPOs for multiple objects in just one click.

Depending on various factors, an organization's policies can regularly change. As these changes happen, an administrator would normally be required to make corresponding changes in GPOs. For instance, a GPO that deals with firewall settings might apply to an entire OU, but a change in that organization's policy might demand that it be applied to only a few child OUs within that OU. To facilitate these types of changes, quickly and easily, ADManager Plus offers the following features:

Manage GPO links
  • Enable, disable, or remove GPO links
  • Enforce or remove enforcement options for GPO links
  • Block or unblock inheritance of GPO links

ADManager Plus, with its wide variety of features and easy-to-use UI, makes GPO management easy for IT administrators.

And that's not all! ADManager Plus is also capable of performing bulk user and group creation and management, password management, computer management, and more.
