gpo order

hi, I have created a gpo to disable write access to usb in the user configuration. the default domain policy is not enabled for the same setting - both gpos are in the same ou. default domain has a link order of 1 and usb has link order of 4 yet usb is processed. I thought the lower link order should take precedence?

RE: gpo order


This sounds a little confusing. It sounds like it does what it should. You disabled it in one GPO, and then "DDP is not enabled for the same setting" means that it sounds like it should be disabled.
Lower link order takes precedence, but also the closer the GPO is linked to the object takes precedence as well.
