Group Policy processing question and Loopback
Posted on 2007-03-27
I am trying to get my head around the order of group policy processing and the difference loopback makes to it.
Now first of all I have read a load of MS articles and web resources and for me none of them are completely clear.
I know the processing order is Local, site, domain, OU
I know that each GPO processes user configuration first and computer configuration second (making computer configuration take precedence)
Now my first question is are the GPOs linked to BOTH the user account and to the computer account applied (assuming there are GPOs for each)? if so in what order, whcih one takes presedence? and are both parts of the GPO applied (i.e. computer and user configuration settings?)
My next question is how does Loopback change this?
I appreciate the help - its driving me crazy!
