Locked

in a GPO, which takes precedence, user or computer configuration?

If a setting in the Computer Configuration portion of a GPO conflicts with the setting in the User Configuration portion, which one wins?

Google failed me.

However, there seems to be an interesting twist...

by Nonapeptide In reply to Solved!

I've been reading a TechNet Magazine article about the use of offline files and during my investigation I discovered something rather interesting. In the "User Config >> Admin Templates >> Network >> Offline Files" Group Policy settings, I was looking at the "Adminstratively assigned offline files" policy and noticed this little note at the bottom of the explanation tab:

"Note: This setting appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both settings are configured, the settings will be combined and all specified files will be available for offline use."

Hmmm... so apparently some objects will combine both user and computer settings.

The plot thickens.
