Policy CSP - DeliveryOptimization

Tip

These are ADMX-backed policies and require a special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.

You must specify the data type in the SyncML as <Format>chr</Format>. For an example SyncML, refer to Enabling a policy.

The payload of the SyncML must be XML-encoded; for this XML encoding, there are a variety of online encoders that you can use. To avoid encoding the payload, you can use CDATA if your MDM supports it. For more information, see CDATA Sections.

Enterprise Yes Yes
Education Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

Note

This policy is only enforced in Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions.

This policy specifies an arbitrary group ID that the device belongs to. Use this ID if you need to create a single group for Local Network Peering for branches that are on different domains or aren't on the same LAN. This approach is a best effort optimization and shouldn't be relied on for an authentication of identity.

Note

You must use a GUID as the group ID.

DeliveryOptimization/DOGroupIdSource

Edition Windows 10 Windows 11
Home No No
Pro Yes Yes

Scope:

  • Device

Set this policy to restrict peer selection to a specific source. Available options are: 1 = Active Directory Site, 2 = Authenticated domain SID, 3 = DHCP Option ID, 4 = DNS Suffix, 5 = Azure Active Directory.

When set, the Group ID will be assigned automatically from the selected source.

If you set this policy, the GroupID policy will be ignored.

The options set in this policy only apply to Group (2) download mode. If Group (2) isn't set as Download mode, this policy will be ignored.

For option 3 - DHCP Option ID, the client will query DHCP Option ID 234 and use the returned GUID value as the Group ID.

Starting with Windows 10, version 1903, you can use the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Tenant ID as a means to define groups. To do this task, set the value of DOGroupIdSource to 5.

ADMX Info:

  • GP Friendly name: Select the source of Group IDs
  • GP name: GroupIdSource
