- A logical concept that is used to represent a single collective set of computer and/or user policies. It is given a unique name, such as a globally unique identifier (GUID). A GPO can be associated with one or more Active Directory containers, such as a site, domain, or organizational unit. Multiple containers can be associated with the same GPO, and a single container can have more than one associated GPO. In addition, by default every computer receives a local Group Policy object (LGPO) that contains only security-specific policies. It is also possible for the administrator to set and apply different local group policies on individual computers. This is useful for computers that are not members of a domain, or computers that the administrator wishes to exempt from Group Policy inherited from the domain.
