  • GPO settings

    Hi. I want to determine the net effect of three group policy objects on users in the Finance OU. The thirst group policy siteGPO, is linked to the W2003 server A.D. site, Helsinki.
    The second group policy domainGPO, is linked to the root domain, IT.
    The third group policy FinanceGPO, is linked to the top-level OU, Finance. How these GPO settings are applied?;

    - The sitegpo is applied, then the domaingpo and finally the financegpo. settings are cumulative. if a conflict exists accross the group policy objects then by default the gpo setting applied last will take precedence.

    - The financegpo is applied, then the sitegpo and finally the domaingpo. settings are cumulative. if a conflict exists accross the group policy objects then by default the gpo setting applied first will take precedence.

    I assume you don't have Block Inheritance or Security Filtering applied, do you?
    Anyway, take a look at this document: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/rspcon2.mspx?mfr=true . The second part deals with GPO precedence order, in case of conflicting configurations.
    If you have an active domain, you should use Group Policy Modeling option to see if the results are as you expect.

    Good luck.
