Dear Experts,

I was wondering what happens when there is a conflication in Group Policy, where if a computer belongs to an OU that has a policy assigned to it saying "screensaver starts after 5 minutes", and then a user that is in a different OU logs onto that computer where the user's policy states "screensaver starts after 10 minutes", who wins?

And Am I right in thinking, that when designing group policies, you wouldn't make policies that would overlap?

Thanks,

Thanks,

Hi,

Out of user and computer, Computer policy always win.

When Group policies are defined, they are defined in such a way that they won't conflict. In case their is conflict and they want a specific policy to get apply no matter what they consultants may use loopback policy.
