Group Policy Loopback

I keep forgetting how to enable Group Policy Loopback processing, this is useful if you have an advanced structure/advanced needs within your OU’s in AD.

The recipe is simple;

To set user configuration per computer, follow these steps:

  1. In the Group Policy Microsoft Management Console (MMC), click Computer Configuration.
  2. Locate Administrative Templates, click System, click Group Policy, and then enable the Loopback Policy option.

This will allow for Usersettings to be propagated even if they are only in the Computer OU.
