Domain Targeting

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

A Domain targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if the user is logged on to or the computer is a member of the domain specified in the targeting item. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if the user is not logged on to or the computer is not a member of the domain specified in the targeting item

 

Domain name

The NetBIOS name with which to compare domain membership.

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

User logged on to domain

If this option is clicked, the targeting item compares the specified domain name to the domain to which the end user is logged on. This is also the domain of which the end user is a member and uses the %LogonDomain% variable for comparison.

noteNote
This option is available only for preference items under User Configuration .

Computer in domain

If this option is clicked, the targeting item compares the specified domain name with the domain to which the computer belongs. It uses the %DomainName% variable for comparison.

noteNote
You must choose either User logged on to domain or Computer in domain .

Additional considerations

  • 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.
