GPO Question

#1
What i need is for for all users to not beable to see the C drive. I can accomplish this VIA GPO no problem. However for 20 computers, Group X need to be able to see the C drive but i only want group X to be able to see the C drive on those 20 computers. How is this possible. I cant think of a clever way to do so.

1st create a new OU with all users that you dont want to be able to see the C drive (e.g everyone except "Group X"),
then apply the gpo to just that OU via a user configuration GPO, that will mean that only "group X" can see the c drive on any pc on the domain.

Next to lock it down even more make a 2nd New OU with all PC's in except the 20 you want "Group X" to have C Drive access to, then apply the same setting via computer configuration, this will mean "group x" wil only be able to see the c drive on the 20 pc's you have chosen.

that would work i think?

As the 20 users wont be in that OU then the GPO wont apply to them + they will be able to access the c drive.

but those 20 users can then see the C drive anywhere they login. I want limit them to seeing the C drive only on say 30 computers.

me either, but i would have thought it was possible to take the same setting + make it computer based?


*carries on with google*

well the catch to that would be that i still want other users to login to any pc AND be able to see the C drive.. a computer setting would thus defeat that

i think i got it..... what i did was restrict c drive access to everyone in my main group..... when you login a script runs and maps a Z drive to the local folder that those 20 users need access to. From there the users have no access to the C drive.. yet can work with the Z drive... which is actually a folder on the C drive... when they leave the lab a Z drive will not map because that local folder does not exsisit.


still need more testing but this may work :)
