Zacker book, Chapter 16

Creating GPOs can get some what tricky when it comes to studying server as there are a lot of variables. However its not nearly as bad
as DHCP concepts. There’s not a whole lot for me to discuss about this that cant be found other places. But I am going to leave a video
here as this is primarily a GUI topic and that might just be more helpful than just describing it.

Interesting graphics concerning group policy applications, any way heres the second part.

I also really enjoy this guy and hes very consistent. As far as introductory materials go, I think this guy is pretty spot on and great
to watch, not as dry as some materials which can be great for a casual or new student.

Please read the header for this post
