Reference Material | GPO Processing

If more than one GPO is linked on the same level, the link order of the GPOs determine the order the GPOs will be processed.

If conflicting settings from multiple GPOs apply to a user, Group Policy will resolve the conflict. Group Policy Objects are applied in the following order; the GPO closest to the user object in AD will have the highest precedence.

  • Local Group Policy Objects

Note: Specops uReset settings cannot be created on this level.

  • Site linked Group Policy Objects
  • Domain linked Group Policy Objects
  • OU linked Group Policy Objects

If the above order does not enable you to apply your preferred settings, you can use security filtering, to control on a permission level, which users and computers will be affected by the GPO. Security filtering allows you to apply different policy settings to objects located on the same level in Active Directory.
