Assign and activate policies

To enable a policy to be implemented for a user/computer, you need to assign it to a container object (root nodes, domain, OU, BuiltIn container or workgroup). For the policy assigned to the user/computer to become effective, when you assign a policy anywhere in the hierarchy, all computers (authenticated computers) and all users (authenticated users) are activated automatically (assignment without activation is not enough). All users and all computers are combined into these groups.
