A.D.: Policy applied to Computers Container

Hello you Gurus!

Here's another thing that I want to ask you for clarifications.
A 70-293 MS Press book (v.1) states:

"By default, Windows Server 2003 places all the member servers joined to a
domain in a container object, beneath the domain, called Computers (...).
The Computers object is not a domain, site, or organizational unit object,
however, so you cannot associate a GPO with it. Furthermore, this container
also contains the computer objects for all your workstations, so you would
not want to apply a member server baseline to it."

Isn't this false? I mean: I verified that Computers container inherits the
Default Domain Policy (as it was supposed to be), so I think that this
statement can take to great
misconceptions... Am I right?
Thanks a lot to everybody!
Bye
MD

Hi MD,

The Computers object in Active Directory is a Group, not an Organizational
Unit. As such you cannot apply Group Policy to it, but objects within the
group will take on the Group Policy of the parent object, in this case the
domain.

SBS Admins beware: In Small Business Server the structure differs... Though
what I said is true, there is also a tree called My Business (OU). Within
that tress there is an OU called Computers, where SBS places its members by
default. This is specific to SBS and as I always tell my students, SBS is a
great package and may well be the panacea to small businesses, but it is
often a detriment when studying for Enterprise level exams because of small
differences like this!

Good luck!

M
