    I’ve created a User GPO to map a drive for users in a SUB-OU who need it. The GPO is linked to the user SUB-OU for the department in question. There are about 50 users in that SUB-OU and I only need the GPO to apply to about ten of them. I created a Global Security group with only those ten users and added it to Security Filtering for the GPO thinking that would work.

    However the GPO refuses to apply unless I leave Authenticated Users in Security Filtering. (Authenticated Users is now required for applying User GPO’s). In this scenario, the mapping then applies to ALL users in the linked SUB-OU and not simple to the ten users in the security group that I created.

    How do I get the GPO to apply to the SUB-OU but still only set the mapping for the few users who need it? I don’t want to make another SUB-OU just to accommodate drive mapping for these users since this is a process that will have broader implications for other department.
