How do I add desktop icons to client workstations for selected organizational units using Active Directory?
In any case, you can use any method available for deploying registry settings and files to desktops through Active Directory. Possibly the cleanest method is going to be building a Windows Installer package file that installs those desktop icons, and then deploying the package file through a group policy.
You can also add the desktop icons using login scripts that you configure for each organizational unit.
