Dear All,

We have here many OU's .under each OU we have many sub Ou's . I applied group policy for desktop wall paper to the main OU . But this wallpaper policy is not getting applied to sub OU's.when i go to see sub OU's there is no policy under this.

My question is if we apply Group policies to the main OU's , all the sub OU's should take the policy automatically.

here its not taking. do i need to configure in each sub Ou's or should i link each sub OU's to that particular policy.

Please advice

Regards,

JCT

No. The Group Policy will apply to all sub-OUs, unless Block Inheritance has been configured on an OU below the main OU. If it is not getting applied to the sub OUs, make sure another GPO is not taking precedence at the lower levels, which may also be set to Enforced.

Hi,

When I go to Group policy inheritance of that particular Sub Ou's its shows the policies.

GPO status -Enabled & WMI- None.

Then the policy is being applied. Do you have any other policies listed there? If so, perhaps one of these other policies has identical settings that are overriding.

Awesome. Did it just start working on its own? Or did you find an overriding policy?
