AD & GPO: How to enable or configure Windows Hello?

To create this GPO is pretty simple, just by creating a new GPO or you could reuse a existing GPO (Not the default GPO).

*Note: Windows Hello only works with Windows Server 2016 and Surface Pro, Windows 10

Here are the simple steps;

  1. At the Group Policy Management > Group Policy Objects > right click to create a new policy/edit the existing policy
  2.  The image below is basically the policy to enable Windows Hello featuregpowinhello.JPG
  3. After this, remember to link the gpo to the OU that you wish it will take the gpo
  4. Remember to also do a “gpupdate /force” at both the server and computer side.
    • Open cmd > type the command “gpupdate /force”
  5. There is a gpupdate function with one push, but you have to make sure that the user’s computer are connected.
    • In the GPMC > select the OU > right click > select GPO Update policy
      • This will update all the objects inside that particular OU
