Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 Group Policy provides powerful capabilities for deploying configuration changes across the enterprise. As with any other change within the enterprise, Group Policy deployments and ongoing updates require careful planning and testing to ensure a highly available and secure infrastructure. By using features included in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), you can create a test/staging/production deployment process that ensures predictability and consistency during Group Policy deployments.
