Microsoft® Office® 2010 Group Policy Settings
Group Policy in Office 2010 is a set of rules which control the working environment of applications and performs centralized management and configuration of entire Office suite. True policies are those Group Policy settings that administrators can fully manage. Settings that users can configure are known as preferences. True policies are used in Windows networks. Network administrators use the group policy settings on their Windows network to manage the settings of the Office applications. Policy templates can be downloaded from Microsoft’s site. The infrastructure of Group Policy consists of a Group Policy engine and several individual extensions. Group policy deployment is a intricate network administration task. You should thoroughly read the documentation Microsoft provides and test the chosen settings on a small group of user PCs prior to full deployment. There is a group policy engine and several individual extensions in a group policy infrastructure. Group Policy settings are made using these extensions.
- Setting Group Policy
Setting Group Policy
Office 2010 is configured by creating Group Policy Objects (GPO). Then you can apply that GPO to a specific site so that the users of that site receives only the configurations of Office 2010 that you are specified in Office 2010 GPO. You can download the Group Policy administrative template files and Office customization tool for Office 2010 from Microsoft’s site. These files can be used to set-up a Group Policy for your Office 2010.
Every computer has a local GPO and it processes Group Policy for both computer and user. Shared applications are processed as the administrators setting in Group Policy Management Console. Multiple domain linked GPOs are processed in linked group policy objects tab for the domain in GPMC. Highest precedence will be given to the GPO that has the lowest link but is processed last. GPOs linked to the organizational units (OU) that is highest in the Active Directory hierarchy are processed first, and then GPOs that are linked to its child are processed next, and so on.
You can assign Group Policy in domains, sites or organizational units. Office 2010 is highly advanced and costly, so the accessibility of Office applications in a network can be determined using Group Policy settings. You can apply security filtering to your Office suite. Applying Group Policy will bring better reliability to your Office 2010. You will be able to block uploading of Office 2010 files. By setting Group Policy, your network will be updated with latest updates of office suite, automatically.
