Unless you are an Approver or an AGPM Administrator (Full Control), you must request the creation of a new Group Policy object (GPO) if it is to be managed using Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM).

A user account with the Editor or Reviewer 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. Unless you have special permission to create GPOs, you must submit a request for creation. In the New Controlled GPO dialog box:

    1. To receive a copy of the request, enter your e-mail address in the Cc field.

    2. Type a name for the new GPO.

    3. Optional: Type a comment for the new GPO.

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

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

    6. Click Submit.

  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 Pending tab. When an Approver has approved your request, the GPO will be moved to the Controlled tab.

Additional considerations

  • By default, you must be an Editor or a Reviewer to perform this procedure. Specifically, you must have List Contents permission for the domain.

  • To withdraw your request before it has been approved, click the Pending tab. Right-click the GPO, then click Withdraw. The GPO will be destroyed.
