        The Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Group Policy Management Pack for Operations Manager 2005 provides a way to monitor, respond to, and notify operations staff about the following:
        • Health states of the delivery
        • Application of Group Policy (GP) for registry-based policy settings
        • Application of Group Policy for in-scope, client-side extensions

        The Group Policy Management Pack is focused on the delivery and application of Group Policy on infrastructure servers (for example, file servers, terminal servers, or Exchange servers) for Windows Server 2008 operating systems. This management pack is not intended for use on client computers (for example, portable computers or desktop computers). This is because the Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 Agent is required on each computer that is monitored by MOM 2005, and MOM 2005 cannot scale to thousands of clients.

        Group Policy is an infrastructure used to deliver and apply one or more desired configurations or policy settings to a set of targeted users and computers within an Active Directory environment. This infrastructure consists of a Group Policy engine and multiple client-side extensions (CSEs) responsible for reading specific policy settings on target client computers.

        The Software Installation extension of Group Policy provides on-demand software installation and automatic repair of applications. Group Policy offers a convenient method for distributing software, especially if you are already using Group Policy for other purposes (such as securing your client and server computers).

        The Scripts extension applies one or more scripts to a computer or users. Scripts applying to computers are run during startup and shutdown. Scripts applying to users are run during logon and logoff.

        The Registry extension allows you to use Group Policy to centrally manage client registry keys. This client-side extension is used to apply registry-based policy settings (Administrative templates) by creating and configuring the client registry keys.
