Hi Guys

Probably a quick one for those in the know...

I need to apply a GPO to an OU - a very simple one - different proxy settings for an OU containing service accounts.

This OU is already inheriting a GPO which contains a different proxy. Is it possible to ensure this new GPO takes precedence over the inherited domain GPO?

Thanks in advance

If you apply the new GPO to an subordinate OU by default it takes precedence over the inherited GPO unless this is set to be enforced.
