To enforce a Group Policy object link

    • To enforce a GPO link at the domain level, double-click Domains , and then double-click the domain containing the GPO link.

    • To enforce a GPO link at the OU level, double-click Domains , double-click the domain containing the OU, and then double-click the OU containing the GPO link.

    • To enforce a GPO link at the site level, double-click Sites , and double-click the site containing the GPO link.

  2. Right-click the GPO link, and then click Enforced to enable or disable enforcing the link. A check mark next to Enforced indicates that the link is enforced.

Additional considerations

  • You must have Link GPOs permission for the domain, site, or organizational unit containing the GPO link to complete this procedure.

  • To determine whether a GPO link is enforced, you can also click the GPO link and look at the information in the Links section of the Scope tab.
