Group policy precedence
Posted on 2008-10-31
I understand that Group Policy takes the following precedence:
Local Group Policy objectEach computer has exactly one Group Policy object that is stored locally. This processes for both computer and user Group Policy processing.
SiteAny GPOs that have been linked to the site that the computer belongs to are processed next. Processing is in the order that is specified by the administrator, on the Linked Group Policy Objects tab for the site in Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). The GPO with the lowest link order is processed last, and therefore has the highest precedence.
DomainProcessing of multiple domain-linked GPOs is in the order specified by the administrator, on the Linked Group Policy Objects tab for the domain in GPMC. The GPO with the lowest link order is processed last, and therefore has the highest precedence.
My question is:
Do site, domain and OU group policies, overwrite the local group policy on a computer? So that if the computer is taken off the domain, would it retain the settings it received from a domain group policy?
