Hi everyone,

I'm evaluating a number of different tools to use to manage my environment of over 400 servers. It is a mixed environment running Windows and Linux but it is predominantly Windows. The intention in exploring a new tool is to use a single tool for all platforms, as much as possible. Right now, we use Group Policies and Local Policies to manage the configuration of the Windows servers joined and not joined to the domain respectively. Maybe I am mistaken, but I noticed that there is gap in Puppet's features when it comes to GPOs and Local Policies. I've not been able to find anything so far on how we can use Puppet to create, edit and deploy these policies, for example Remote Desktop security settings. if anyone can provide some insights into how this can be accomplished, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
