In this course, Darren Mar-Elia (GPOGUY) discusses the common pitfalls and issues involved in using Group Policy, how to avoid them with good design principles, and how to troubleshoot the all-too-common bloated GP infrastructure. We give Darren a scenario environment overloaded with policies, including several conflicting policies, and watch as he walks through inventory, normalizing, and deployment of revised policies. Play by Play is a series in which we sit down with top industry experts and discuss technologies, problems and solutions in real time, unscripted and unrehearsed. Have you ever wished you could watch one of your tech heroes work through a problem in real time, using their own tools and tricks? This is the series for you.
