Hello, could you please let me know the different types of policies that are available (for example:  group, local, etc...) the hierarchy (for example if there is a group policy and a local policy, etc...which one gets applied).  Are some policies only available in a Domain setting?  Is the Local policy only for that specific computer?  Can a Group policy be used to affect only a certain number of computers or users?  If you could please provide website/s that explain I would appreciate it.  Thanks

It will take you to a hierarchical site that you can drill down on to get all sorts of knowledge about policies.

Hi,

There are two types of GPOs.  There are GPOs that are configured locally on the client machine and there are GPOs linked within the Active Directory structure.  

The GPOs can be linked to the following levels:
•Site
•Domain
•Organizational Unit

If you have multiple GPO applied, the order of process is as follows:

•Local
•Site
•Domain
•Organizational Unit

This means that Local GPO get applied first, follow by the Site and then by the Domain policy and finally then the Organisation Unit.

For more information please follow the links below
