Starter GPOs and setting links

This question is mostly straight forward, the kind of obvious part where you have to decide if the two gpos have been created or if you are still in the process of creating them from the starter gpo is a little confusing but ultimately it seems clear that they exist prior to the effort that you are undertaking currently, for better or worse.

I tried to find a youtube video that demonstrated this way of linking gpos but I found it surprisingly difficult. Im not saying it doesnt exist but I gave a good 30-45 mins of searching and found nothing. So we are just going to trust that this method actually works in practice.

I suppose if I had access to server I could make a video for this unfortunately I dont and according to the answer my question of linking starter GPOs may be irrelevant because they serve as templates, not actual GPOs if my understanding is correct. Maybe I understand this, so the process goes:

  1. create starter gpo

2. create an actual gpo from a starter gpo template

3. link that gpo to an OU, which you cannot do from the starter gpo settings.

This would be much easier if I could actually test this on the software.
