Heyas,

A rather odd question if you have 3 configuration files;
Domain config (Top)
Computer config (Middle)
User config (Bottom)

And your access policy states that configuration in the User can override any matching permissions/blocks in the computer config and domain config. Whilst the computer config and override any matching permission/block in the domain config. What is the name of an access/configuration policy structure?

Thank you

Is this an assignment?

a policy where the domain has unequivocal authority over the computer which has it over user would likely be called centralized/concentrated type.

No I'm not doing an assignment I am writing a report. What your saying is correct however a user config would override a computer config if their no equivalent policy in the computer config.  Is their any term for that?

The opposite, I think it would be decentralized.

Can you provide any whitepapers or links that describe this type of access control structure?

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

What is the context of your report?  I simply reformulated your access control to come up with initially a clue in the event this was an assignment.

You can have it defined as a weighted access where domain has the highest weight least preferred to user that has the lowest weight highest preference.

In different schemes it can be interested from least specific to most specific .

I am trying to understand what it is you are trying to get to, to properly formulate the issue at hand in order to determine what the answer is.

That's the first thing that came to mind for me too, David - Group Policy.

GPO is centralized where settings set in a domain can not be overridden by anything unless another policy is enforced.  While he ordered them domain, computer, user the dominant is the user not the domain.

That's fine I will leave it at that, as I am still learning about the system myself I don't have any information as this stage.

Thanks for the help.
