Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

A Site targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if the processing computer is in the site in Active Directory specified in the targeting item. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if the processing computer is not in the site in Active Directory specified in the targeting item.

 

Site

The site name against which the site in which the processing computer resides is compared. Matching is not text case sensitive.

noteNote
The Site box accepts preference processing variables. Press F3 to display a list of variables from which you can select.

  • To reposition a targeting item within the list of targeting items that you have applied to a preference item, either drag the targeting item to a new position, or select the targeting item and then click the Move Up arrow or Move Down arrow.

  • Boxes in Computer Name (NetBIOS only), Domain, Site, Terminal Session, and User (if not matched by SID) targeting items accept single character (?) and multiple character (*) wildcards.

  • Preference items are available only in domain-based GPOs.
