A Domain targeting item allows a preference item to be applied to computers or users only if the user is logged on to or the computer is a member of the domain or workgroup specified in the targeting item. If Is Not is selected, it allows the preference item to be applied only if the user is not logged on to or the computer is not a member of the domain or workgroup specified in the targeting item
User logged on to domain
If this option is clicked, the targeting item compares the specified domain name to the domain to which the end user is logged on. This is also the domain of which the end user is a member and uses the %LogonDomain% variable for comparison.
This option is available only for preference items under User Configuration.
Computer in domain
If this option is clicked, the targeting item compares the specified domain name with the domain or workgroup to which the computer belongs. It uses the %DomainName% variable for comparison.
You must choose either User logged on to domain or Computer in domain.
To reposition a targeting item within the list of targeting items that you have applied to a preference item, either drag the targeting item to a new position, or select the targeting item and then click the Move Up arrow or Move Down arrow.
Boxes in Computer Name (NetBIOS only), Domain, Site, Terminal Session, and User (if not matched by SID) targeting items accept single character (?) and multiple character (*) wildcards.
Preference items are available only in domain-based GPOs.
