Hello,

will a GPO linked to an OU apply correctly if the computer
object is still in the Computers OU or I have to move it to the OU which
has the GPO linked.

Also does the Everyone under the Security Filtering means all users and
computers in the specified OU ?

Thank you

The computer has to be moved to the respective OU where the policy exists.

Everyone = everyone in the domain, including the guest account, the IIS
anonymous account (that anonymous web users will use to connect to a
webserver), including everyone in all domains connected by a trust, in your
forest and other forests. Usually I leave the default permissions alone,
otherwise use Authenticated Users, which does not include guests or the
anonymous users.

Hello aconti,

The computers OU you mean is not an OU it is a container, where you can not
link any GPO to. Complare the signs of OU and container, they are different.

And yes, the GPOs must be linked to an OU where the computers/users are located.

Best regards
