    Override an OU group policy with a local policy?

    Is it possible to override a policy on an OU for a user with a local group
    policy? I want to enable a password protected screensaver for all users on
    all computers except when they log on to a specific computer.

    Please help

  2. Policies are applied in this order:

    1.The unique local Group Policy object.
    2.Site Group Policy objects, in administratively specified order.
    3.Domain Group Policy objects, in administratively specified order.
    4.Organizational unit Group Policy objects, from largest to smallest
    organizational unit (parent to child organizational unit), and in
    administratively specified order at the level of each organizational unit.

    By default, policies applied later overwrite previously applied policies
    when the policies are inconsistent. If the settings are not inconsistent,
    however, earlier and later policies both contribute to the effective policy.

    Thanks for your help. The loopback processing will solve my problem.
