I have a GOP called wsus-santafe that I am unable to locate where this GPO is located in Group Policy Management?

I ran a gpresult /r on my PC and on Applied Group Policy Objects it showed the GPO called wsus-santafe.

I verify what OU my computer was in AD,

Check Group Policy Management to locate wsus-santafe unable to locate it?


Any suggestion would be grately appreciated

It's probably linked to an AD Site. Based on the name, I would suspect the Santa Fe site ;-)

Well, the GPO could still be linked there. By default, sites do not appear in the GPMC.

Sorry for not understanding this.
 
When I am in Active Directory Users and Computers, and right click on my Domain Controller.  I show three domain contorls all showing site SantaFe.  When I go into the GPMC and open all OUs non show this GPO call wsus-santafe?

I just can't understand where this GPO?

Well, you can always look under "Group Policy Object", select the GPO and see where it's linked. Or right-click on the "Sites" node and select "Show Sites..."

It could be that the same GPO is linked to several OU's or sites.
And /or
If the GPO is configured (*) for user and computer settings, it will be shown an even number of times, once under "COMPUTER SETTINGS" and once under "USER SETTINGS".

Start gpmc.msc, locate the GPO under "Domains/YourDomainName/Group Policy Objects", in the right pane change the dropdown box "Display links in this location" to "Entire forest".  You'll see all OU's and sites where the GPO is linked to :

(*) Right click the GPO, select GPO Status : enabled  | User disabled  | Computer disabled  | All disabled
