Verify GPO App Package Installed

With the application uploaded, assigned, and enrolled, we will now verify that the GPO app package is applied successfully to our enrolled device.

1. Verify the App Package Installed from the Workspace ONE UEM Console

  1. Click Apps & Books.
  2. Click Applications.
  3. Click Native.
  4. Click the Internal tab.
  5. Click the uploaded GPO App Package.  This will be in the name format GPO <machinename> <date> <time>.zip.

This will open the Details View page of the GPO App Package, allowing you to see additional details about the application.

1.1. Verify the Install Status of the GPO App Package

  1. The Install Status section confirms how many devices have installed the application.  You will likely see 1 Not Installed when navigating here since you just enrolled your Windows 10 device and it has not had sufficient time to receive the install command yet.
  2. The Deployment Progress section confirms which devices the app is assigned to, as well as the status and deployment configurations.
  3. Click the Devices tab.

1.2. Send the Install Command to the Device (IF NEEDED)

To expedite the device receiving the install command for this lab, you will send the install command manually from the console.

  1. Check the Install Status and Reason of your device.  If you see Install Command Ready for Device for the Reason, that means the device has not received the install command yet.  If the Install Status shows Installed already, you can skip to the next step.
  2. Click the checkbox to select the device.
  3. Click Install.

1.3. Confirm the Application Install Command (IF NEEDED)

Click OK to confirm the application install command.

1.4. Confirm the Install Command was Dispatched

  1. Confirm the Reason now shows Install Command Dispatched.  This means the command has been sent to the device and is waiting to be processed.
  2. Click Refresh.  You should refresh periodically every 1-2 minutes until the Install Status or Reason updates.

1.5. Confirm the Application Installed

Confirm that the Install Status shows Installed.

NOTE: If you do not see the Installed status, you may need to continue refreshing.  The application may take several minutes to download and deploy to the device before it reports as Installed.

2. Open Group Policy Editor

  1. In Windows Search, enter gpedit.msc.
  2. Click gpedit.msc.

2.1. Allow Microsoft Management Console to Make Changes to Device (IF NEEDED)

If you are prompted to allow the Microsoft Management Console to make changes to your device, click Yes.

If you do not see this prompt, continue to the next step.

  1. Click Computer Configuration.
  2. Click Administrative Templates.
  3. Click System.
  4. Double-click Power Management.

2.3. Open the Active Power Plan Settings

Double-click Select an active power plan.

2.4. Confirm Policy Settings

  1. Confirm that the policy is Enabled and that the Active Power Plan is set to High Performance.  These settings were applied by our GPO application package that was sent to our device.
  2. Click Close.

3. Confirm Power and Sleep Settings

  1. Right-click the Windows button.
  2. Click Power Options.

Click Additional power settings.

3.2. Confirm the Power Options Settings shows High Performance

  1. Confirm that the set plan is set to High Performance.
  2. You should also see a notification above the power plans stating Change settings that are currently unavailable. Clicking this message will show that the settings are unavailable to change because they are being controlled by the system administrator through the policies we packaged and deployed through Workspace ONE UEM.

This shows how you can capture and export GPOs from one device and quickly apply the same settings to another device without the need to create profiles or policies manually.
