Scriptable Policy Settings

The Group Policy protocols apply policy settings to Group Policy clients when specific events occur, such as computer startup, computer shutdown, user logon, and user logoff, as described in section These events provide the Group Policy administrator with the opportunity to run scripts that apply additional policy configurations to the Group Policy client. These scripts can be stored on any server that contains a Group Policy file share, which includes the Group Policy server. Users and computers must be able to access this share.

For more information about applying policy settings during the events mentioned in this section, see the documentation for the Group Policy: Scripts Extension Encoding protocol [MS-GPSCR].
