The Two Sides of Group Policy Script Extension Processing

Have you ever deployed a script using Group Policy and wondered why it didn’t run? The Group Policy team has published a series of articles to address this question.


Part 1 shows you how to go about discovering the reason, focusing on how to determine if Group Policy scripts client-side extension (CSE) processed the scripts extension correctly.


Part 2 delves deeper into resolving this issue by extending our Group Policy scripts knowledge past the point where Group Policy processes the client-side extension.
