I currently have a group policy applied to an OU.  That OU contains one server and there are COMPUTER and USER settings being applied by that policy.  These settings are applied to anyone who logs into that computer.

All of this is working as planned.

Now when an Admin logs into that computer the policies are also getting applied which is removing access to the control panel.  This is expected because that's what the policy says to do.

I have made another policy that gives access to the control panel and I have applied that policy to the OU where the admin users are located.

How do I make sure the Policy that the admins need over rides or takes precedence over the policy of the server ?
