Which Steady State settings take precedence? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Which Steady State settings takes precedence or (wins)?  I have Steady State loaded on XP computers in a 2003 Windows Server envrionment using Active Directory and Group policies.  I downloaded the group policy plug in for Steady State (SCTSettings.adm).  When these settings are set in group Policy and the local Steady State settings are set on the computer, which settings "wins"?  Which settings are the settings that rule?  Can there be a conflict if both are set?

    Hi Jim, generally speaking, the group policy in AD should override the group policy on the local computer. That is to say, if you set restrictions in SCTSettings.adm on the server, it will override the settings on local computer with Windows SteadyState installed.

    Hope this helps!
