How can I block the inheritance from one global policy but not others?


Basically, I've implemented a group policy across all user OU's but I do not want it affecting one specific OU. I know I can use block inheritance, but this will also block other group policies I have in place for things such as WSUS. Is there a way I can block this one policy but allow the others through, without setting up individual policies per OU?

Look forward to your response.

the best way is not to assign it to that ou.
you could use the security filtering in the scope tab of the group policy in gpmc
bit of a pain to do but achieves what you want without reorganizing your ou structure

it sounds like you've done it all correctly
try using the the group policy modeling in GPMC to see if its all setup correctly
i'm off on holiday tonight so i can't be anymore help (not that i've been much help so far)
good luck
i am away also but i would create a seprate ou and just put the machines and users in that group, keep authenticated users and see if it works that way
