Inheritance and group policy conflicts

We have a Windows 2003 SBS server which has wsus enabled on the default domain policy.  The server has downloaded Microsoft server service pack two and attempted to install it during the evening.  This has caused the server to lock up.  When we review the automatic update download settings on the domain controller in the options are grayed out.

We have temporarily set the default domain wsus group policy to download the updates and notify us that they're available to install.

We have also gone into wsus and disable the installation of the service pack.

The question is if we edit the group policy for the domain controllers (which of course there is only one) and set it to simply download the updates and notify us when they are available to install will this override the default domain wsus policy if we modify the default domain group policy back to its setting to automatically download and install the update.

your Default DC policy will over ride for the DC yes - this is the best way to configure it if you are going to use WSUS to update DC's....I prefer not to update them at all automatically, its much safer to manually do it....

You really should be adding WSUS policies to the default domain policy - this should be left at defaults

Thank you for your response but I'm a little confused:

Are you saying that the DC organizational unit policy that we establish will override the general domain policy?  (Your comment uses the phrase DC twice.)

Please advise-thanks again.
