JSI Tip 6558. A Group Policy Object (GPO) name is truncated if it exceeds 255 characters?

When you create a GPO name that exceeds 255 characters, the name is truncated because GPO names are limited to 255 characters.

NOTE: To directly open the Group Policy snap-in, type gpedit.msc into the Run box or at a CMD prompt.
