Loopback Processing Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I have a GPO which is linked to an OU containing Computers. The loopback is on Replace Mode.
    The GPO contains "Computers Settings" and "Users Settings".
    The target computer is "mypc" and target user is "myuser".
    mypc and myuser has the Read/Apply permission in delegation tab.

     

    The expected results are :
         the GPO apply the "Computers Settings" for mypc and the "Users Settings" for myuser (if logs in on mypc)
         the GPO apply the "Computers Settings" only, for other users (if logs in on mypc)
         the GPO doesn't apply the "Computers Settings on other pc"

     

    The real result is :

        the GPO apply the "Computers Settings" for mypc, but skip completely the "Users Settings" (for myuser)

     

    By the way, even if I set Authenticated user to read /apply it doesn't work for users settings.

    Could you explain me why ?


    The key of learning is practice.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    For loopback processing, there are two OUs related called computer OU and user OU and two GPOs related called GPO1 and GPO2. GPO1 and GPO2 both contain user configuration. We link GPO1 to computer OU and GPO2 to user OU. “mypc” is in computer OU and “myuser” is in user OU.

    If we select Replace mode, when myuser log in on mypc, the user configuration applied is decided by GPO1. User configuration in GPO2 would be ignored.

    If we select Merge mode, user configuration in GPO1 and GPO2 both would be applied. But if there is any conflict between two GPO, user configuration in GPO1 would be preferred.

    We could refer to the description about loopback processing.

    Hope above information could help you.

    Best Regards,
