Client-side Processing of Group Policy

Some of the Group Policy components include client-side extensions (.dlls) that implement Group Policy at client computers. The client-side extensions are loaded as needed when a client computer is processing policy. The client computer first gets a list of Group Policy objects. Next, it loops through all the client-side extensions and determines whether each client-side extension has any data in any of the Group Policy objects. If a client-side extension has data in a Group Policy object, the client-side extension is called with the list of Group Policy objects that it should process. If the client-side extension does not have any settings in any of the Group Policy objects, it is not called.

Table 22.4 lists the client-side extensions.
