Message-ID: <> (raw)

Greetings, all!

A new version of the GPUpdate package has been released. It is 
a tool which updates group policies on ALT operating systems. The 
GPUpdate mechanisms apply group policies to both computers and users on 
client machines. GPUpdate is a part of an alternate solution by Basalt 
Ltd. to implement an Active Directory domain for Linux. The facility 
supports MS AD or Samba DC domain infrastructure.

In the possibilities of applying group policies have been 
expanded. The new release of the tool supports applying of all Mozilla 
Firefox and Chromium web browser group policies to computer. Some added 
mechanisms for applying script policies - logon/logoff/startup/shutdown; 
mechanisms for applying system settings parameters (preferences): 
operations with files (Files), directories (Folders), configuration 
files (Ini-files).

A new action to update the status of services in gpupdate-setup is added 
- update key runs all required services when the initiated gpupdate is 

Application of custom policies in terms of correct operation and 
security has been improved. In release systemd has the system 
timer (gpupdate.timer) and the user timer (gpupdate-user.timer) to 
monitor and control the execution time of the gpupdate.service. Now 
gpupdate refresh is configured via a timer.

The Group Policy loopback processing mode has been optimized. This 
policy allows you to override the settings of one GPO over the settings 
of another GPO for users of the last one.

Thus the GPUpdate tool new version enhances policies applicability in 
domain for Linux.

You can install gpupdate from the p10 stable branch of the ALT repositories:
