  • Hi Chandanr,
    Thanks for your post.
    The GPO precedence is local group policy(there are local group policy and domain group policy), site, domain, OU.

    For local group policy, each computer has exactly one Group Policy object that is stored locally. This processes for both computer and user Group Policy processing.
    Site policy is a GPO link to site. For the same reason with domain and OU.
    This order means that the local GPO is processed first, and GPOs that are linked to the organizational unit of which the computer or user is a direct member are processed last, which overwrites settings in the earlier GPOs if there are conflicts. (If there are no conflicts, then the earlier and later settings are merely aggregated.)
    For more information, you could refer to the article below.
