Group Policy -- Logon as a service user right problem

I assigned user1 the right to logon as a service at the domain root.  I didn't click any override options.  

I have user2 assigned the same right on a Local Security Policy.

When user1 is assigned the right in the higher up policy, user2 is not assigned that right.  But when I remove the user1 policy setting, user2 suddenly is assigned the desired user right.

Why is the policy at the root preventing the Local Policy from assigned the right to logon as a service for user2?

Thanks for any input.

How is the group policy assigned? To an OU? are the two users in the same OU?

user1's policy was applied directly to the domian object.

user2's policy was applied directly on the server as a Local Security Policy.

Both users are domian users in the Users OU.

Correction.  user2 is in the same OU as the server.   user1 is in the Users  OU.

Remember that policy at the domain level will automatically override local policy. So if you have the same policy set at the local level and then domain level....the domain level will take over. That is the way group policy is designed.

Policy is applied in the following order:

1. Local
2. Site
3. Domain
4. OU

Group policy will override the ones applied before it....so for example: A domain policy will override site and local policies.

I had thought it would cumulative, adding the users assigned at each level.  I guess that is not the case then?

No, it won't add users from each level. It will override the settings. So user 2 is granted access at the local level...by setting the policy to grant access to user 1 at the domain level.....then you override giving access to user 2.

A good tool to see what is actually being applied is the resultant set of policy tool.

Here's an article on it:
