GPO do not take precedence

I have the following GPO applied to the following OU's:

Workpace OU
Settings1 GPO
     Customer OU
      Settings 2 GPO

The problem is when I do run the GPO results wizard the "settings 2 GPO" do not take precendence over the "settings 1 GPO" (winning GPO). When I check the group policy inheritance of the  "Customer OU" then the "settings 2 GPO" is in the top of the list. Also Enforced is disabled. Any ideas?

Just to double check a few things.

1. You do not have enforced enabled on Settings 1 GPO?
2. Do you see settings 2 GPO listed in the list of processed GPOs on the client? GPresult or the Group Policy log in event viewer will show this information.

1. Yes that is correct. it is not enabled
2. When I check the GPresult the GPO isn't in the list of applied GPO's. But the settings 2 GPO is enabled and has the good scope.

If the GPO isn't listed, something is off in the scoping of the policy. Can you upload a gpresult and a screenshot of the scope of both GPOs?

I checked the guide first before I wrote this question unfortunately without any success.

See attachments for the report & screenshots

settings1 gpo = DMZ Profile user settings

settings 2 gpo = Customer - Paintcenter User settings

Ah dang!

Take a screenshot of the enter GPO scope tab for both GPOs please. Also - take a screenshot of both settings tab (with all settings expanded).

At first glance, I'm guessing you are getting bit by this change, based on the security group change you made in setting 2.

Thank you.

Are the objects in the paintcenter OU users?

Yep the user accounts. The group "Paincenter Users" (where the scope is pointing to) is in another OU.

Ok. If they were just added to the group, did you log off and log back on?

When logged in as a user in that group, launch command prompt. type net user /domain USERNAME

Under group memberships (at the bottom), do you see the paintcenter users group listed?

Hmm... log in as one of those users. Run a gpresult /h report.htm command. Upload the report.htm file that is created.

The option from Cliff does the job. When I added domain computers everything worked fine.

No problem - I went back and added this solution to the group policy troubleshooting article from earlier.
