New Group Policy objects (GPOs) created through the Change Control node will automatically be controlled, enabling you to manage them with Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM).

A user account with the Approver or AGPM Administrator (Full Control) role or necessary permissions in Advanced Group Policy Management is required to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.

To create a new GPO with change control managed through AGPM
  1. In the Group Policy Management Console tree, click Change Control in the forest and domain in which you want to manage GPOs.

  2. Right-click the Change Control node, and then click New Controlled GPO.

  3. In the New Controlled GPO dialog box:

    1. Type a name for the new GPO.

    2. Optional: Type a comment for the new GPO to be displayed in the History for the GPO.

    3. To immediately deploy the new GPO to the production environment, click Create live. To create the new GPO offline without immediately deploying it, click Create offline.

    4. Select the GPO template to use as a starting point for the new GPO.

    5. Click OK.

  4. When the Progress window indicates that overall progress is complete, click Close. The new GPO is displayed in the list of GPOs on the Controlled tab.

Additional considerations

  • By default, you must be an Approver or an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) to perform this procedure. Specifically, you must have List Contents and Create GPO permissions for the domain.
