Applying User Policies

In the Case Active Directory, User Configuration Policies must be applied on a per computer basis using Loopback Processing of Group Policy. This is because the User and Computer objects aren't in the same OU container that the Group Policy Object is linked to. To accomplish this, open up the Group Policy Management Console and click Computer Configuration. Locate Administrative Templates, click System, click Group Policy, and then enable the User Group Policy loopback processing mode. Set the processing mode to Replace.

You can now set user configuration policies in the linked GPO and have them apply to any user logged into the computers in the OU. For instance, this is neccessary to configure the default user background for anyone using computers located in the Nord Lab Computers OU. For more information read KB231287: Loopback Processing of Group Policy.
