does computer overrides user gpo

    Question

  • hi,

    quick question... don't need any other GPO related stuff...

    if GPO has Computer and User setting where Computer setting says Enabled and User setting says Disabled for the same setting.

    Whould computer still takes a precedence. Logically, Computer applies first then when user logs in User GPO applies...

    Thx.

  • In most cases, the description of the policy will tell you which one will take effect. Computer is the normal winner though.

    Depends on the setting... For most Microsoft settings, computer will
    override user, but it's up to the program that evaluates the setting:
     
    HKLM\Software\Policies\MyCorp\MyApp:DisableXyz=1
    HKCU\Software\Policies\MyCorp\MyApp:DisableXyz=0
     
    Which setting does MyApp honor more? :-)

  • Hi,
    Based on my understanding, the description of the policy mentioned by Joseph means the description of detail settings which you set up in the GPO,
    Note: This setting appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both settings are configured, the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.
