Learning about GPO’s

A newbie SBS’er wanted to know about documentations to read to deploy group policy. Here were suggestions from Brandy Nee [MSFT]:

I suggest you that start with the “Implementing Common Desktop Management Scenarios with the Group Policy Management Console”.

This white paper is more basic for you to start with SBS 2K3 server. It includes coverage of Windows Server 2003 and the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). I also found some additional information for you, please see:

Windows Server 2003 Group Policy

Frequently Asked Questions About the Group Policy Management Console
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/gpmcfaq.mspx

Administering Group Policy with the GPMC
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/gpmcwp.mspx

Also, I would to install the SBS2003 update for enabling XP2 firewall via GPO in an SBS2003 network:
