Please Note:

• To link an existing GPO to a site, domain, or OU, you must have Link GPOs permission on that site, domain, or OU.

• After linking the GPO to your OU and the computers receive the new policy, the computers will need to be rebooted to run the startup script that will install the PwrSmart ™ client on the machines. You can either reboot the machines manually or wait for OS patches that will automatically force a reboot.
