        This companion guide to the Foundation Network Guide provides instructions for deploying Group Policy objects to domain-joined computers independently of the organizational unit (OU)hierarchy of the domain. Membership in a single membership group causes the correct GPO to be applied to the computer, with filters ensuring that a GPO for one version of Windows is not accidentally applied to another version.
