Group Policy

Active Directory Group Policy Management

Group Policy in Active Directory (AD) helps IT administrators quickly manage AD users, computers, and groups. Traditionally, administrators had to rely on Active Directory Group Policy management tools such as the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) and Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) for AD and group policy management. Managing group policy using just the native AD group policy management tools and PowerShell can be mundane and time-consuming. Hence, there is an indispensable need to simplify Active Directory and better execute group policy management.

ADManager Plus is web-based Active Directory management and reporting tool that helps manage Group Policy Objects (GPOs) of multiple domains in just a few clicks. It also provides pre-built GPO reports that swiftly fetch GPO-related information.

Manage every aspect of Windows Active Directory Group Policy easily by using ADManager Plus to:

  • Create a GPO and also link it to any container at once
  • Enable or disable GPOs or individual configuration settings (user/computer configurations)
  • Delete GPOs in bulk
  • Create GPO links
  • Enable, disable or remove GPO links
  • Enforce GPOs or remove their enforcement
  • Block or unblock GPO inheritance for any domain or organizational unit (OU) in bulk
