Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl on all platforms
 
Question:
 
Which Windows GPs will also apply to Centrify-installed systems?
 
Answer:
 
Most of the settings in the default administrative GP templates will only apply to Windows computers and Windows user accounts. 
 
However there are a few common Windows configuration settings that can be applied to Centrify Suite-managed computers and users. 
 
These configuration options are NOT duplicated in Centrify Suite administrative templates.
 
Note 1: The following information can also be found on pg19-20 of the Centrify Group Policy Guide:
 
Note 2: User GPs are enabled by default on Mac systems, and disabled by default on all other UNIX/Linux systems.
