Group Policy Preferences Overview (Whitepaper)

This white paper introduces Group Policy preferences, a feature new in Microsoft Windows Server 2008,
and describes how you can use Group Policy preferences to better deploy and manage operating system
and application settings. Group Policy preferences enable information technology professionals to configure,
deploy, and manage operating system and application settings they previously were not able to manage using
Group Policy. Examples include mapped drives, scheduled tasks, and Start menu settings. For many types of
operating system and application settings, using Group Policy preferences is a better alternative to configuring
them in Windows images or using logon scripts.
