Add operating system deployment settings to a Group Policy Object
The operating system image and settings that apply to a computer during installation are determine by the Group Policy Object in Active Directory. You will need to create a Group Policy Object with Specops Deploy/OS settings.
The GPMC snap-in, installed with the Administration Tools, allows you to create and manage Specops Password Policy settings from the Group Policy Management Console. The settings are stored as a part of the Group Policy Object allowing you to control how and where the policy applies.

- Click Edit Policy….
