GPO Issue being applied to users config

I have a single GPO for my new terminal server that has both computer and user configurations. My Terminal server (2008) is located in the computer OU (COU) and my users are located in the users OU (UOU). Both COU and UOU are located under our location OU (LOU). The GPO is linked to the COU and applies perfectly to the computer configuration. None of the User Configuration are applied. The problem with linking the GPO to both COU and UOU is that the local computer is located in a separate OU which has less user permissions then the terminal server. If I apply my GPO to the UOU I will then be in conflict with the permissions I want for my local computers.

You can use loopback processing to accomplish what you want. That's one of the primary uses and one of the reasons it exists.

Exactly what I needed, I used the merge loopback processing instead of replace. Thank you!
