multiple GPO's linked to one OU

    Question

  • I have 5 GPO's linked to one OU and 3 for them are enforced. In what order will they be applied, I think they will be applied from the highest precedence i.e 5 being the first to 1 being the last to be applied, is that correct?

    Best regards, Wayne

    Take a look here:

     >> At the level of each organizational unit in the Active Directory hierarchy, one, many, or no GPOs can be linked. If several GPOs are linked to an organizational unit, their processing is in the order that is specified by the administrator, on the Linked Group Policy Objects tab for the organizational unit in GPMC. The GPO with the lowest link order is processed last, and therefore has the highest precedence.
     HTH
