@James-Holloway56 said in Group Policies, the order they are applied:
I was watching the 2016 videos on Group Policies and they are EXCELLENT and was surprised you brought up Local policies but understood after it was explained.
Just to get something clear in my mind using a Windows 10 workstation joined to a domain.
Would local policies apply(or be in affect) or just the domain policies?
If LOCAL and DOMAIN policies are in effect for the domain then both will apply and the effect is cumulative if not contradictory.
If the local policies also apply what happens if they would conflict with a domain policy, which one would override the Local policy or the domain policy.
The ORDER of Application is key and the LAST one (in terms of order of application) is the one that applies. So the way it is applied in order is the following, 1 to 4, top to bottom of the list.:
4 ORG. UNIT
So if they do not conflict, all apply that are in effect. If they conflict, in your example, the LOCAL will apply, SITE will apply, DOMAIN will override not because of importance but the application order.
