Citrix GPMC Policy overrides Delivery Service Console Policy

I would like to know if  a citrix policy applied at the GPMC console will override the same settings configured at the Delivery services console policy ?


Citrix policies settings applied at the GPMC console will show up the same if we go to Delivery Services console/Policy settings?

Hi there. I think the Citrix Blog post may help to clear up how/where policies are applied.
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Look at this:

Policy Processing and Precedence

Group Policy settings are processed in the following order:

1.Local GPO
2.XenApp farm GPO (stored in the farm data store)
3.Site-level GPOs
4.Domain-level GPOs
5.Organizational Units

However, in the event of a conflict, policy settings that are processed last can overwrite those that are processed earlier. This means that policy settings take precedence in the following order:

1.Organizational Units
2.Domain-level GPOs
3.Site-level GPOs
4.XenApp farm GPO (stored in the farm data store)
5.Local GPO

This is good..I saw it online sometime in the past:
  1.Local GPO
 2.XenApp farm GPO (stored in the farm data store)
 3.Site-level GPOs
 4.Domain-level GPOs
 5.Organizational Units

Sometimes Servers are grouped in worker group in Citrix and the apply policy against the worker group.
in this case we can group them inside an OU and apply policies there

You can always do a very rough calculation of what policies apply:

You can calculate the Resultant Set of Policy in the following ways:
•Use the Citrix Policy Modeling Wizard to simulate a connection scenario and discern how Citrix policies might be applied
•Use Group Policy Results to produce a report describing the Citrix policies in effect for a given user and server.

You can launch both tools from the Group Policy Management console in Windows. If your XenApp environment does not include Active Directory, you can launch the Citrix Group Policy Modeling Wizard from the Actions pane of the AppCenter.

I say "very rough" as policy modeling is notoriously inaccurate.
