  • Loopback

    Can anyone shed any light on the loopback GPO.

    If I have a bunch of GPO's on an OU and one of them has loopback enabled.

    Does this mean all the GPO's on the UO get loopback enabled.

    Or

    Is it just the settings in the GPO which loopback is enabled on which get applied to both user & computer policy?

    Enabling loopback applies it to all policies hitting the computer

      That would be why Ive been going round in circles then.

      If I have a Citrix server (terminal server) and loopback is enabled on the OU.

      The OU has a GPO called "Citrix-Settings" which holds user and computer settings. I also have a few other GPO's on the same OU which only have computer settings enabled.

      Will the loopback effect the GPO's which just have the computer settings enabled?

        No, if there are only computer settings in the GPO then loopback processing will have no effect on them. The loopback processing appends to or replaces the list of policies the user applies when logging on to the computer that is configured with the loopback processing.
