"Oops, I did it again. I played with your stuff, got lost in the editor." Your Group Policy infrastructure shouldn't be treated like dirt, but why do so many people just "dump" stuff in and hope it stays healthy? In this session, Jeremy Moskowitz, GP MVP will explore Microsoft's AGPM tool. This tool helps you perform real change management in your GPOs infrastructure.

If you've got multiple administrators making changes, you'll want to know who changed what, when it happened and exactly how things were changed. You'll want to know how to "roll it back" and ensure total Group Policy security. So no more "Oops!" once you've been to this session.

You will learn:

  • How to get a true "change control" workflow with regards to Group Policy
  • How to ensure that all people use the change control system after its in place
  • Understand what to do before and after Microsoft's pay tool, Microsoft Advanced Group Policy Management is put in place

Important Note: This session will discuss FOR COST tools. Some are provided by Microsoft, while others are from 3rd party vendors. The variety of free tools available will not be discussed in this session.
