    Block inheritance

    Hi,

    We have had to block inheritance of properties in order for our software to run, according to the LEA this was the only way. This causes so many problems!

    My Question is how can I apply a group policy to a container when Block Inheritance has been checked?

    THanks

    Apply that policy to that container? ie. have it applied to the parent, and the child?

    If they are saying you have to block inheritance, i assume of GPO's, then they must be a reason behind it. Is it one setting that should be left as something? You could always try and find out which policy is causing the problems and just deny that one to the OU or find the setting it requires and have another GPO for his which u apply with the software? simply doing what they have said may solve the issue, but knowing why that works would be a better step to finding a better solution (better being you don't have to disable inheritance.) my 2pence neway.

    If enabling block inheritance solves the problem, there could typically be a conflict of policies somewhere which is inherited higher up the tree. Using GPMC will allow you to easily view which policies are being applied so you can isolate the problem.

    I would only ever enable block inheritance as the last option. I would consider it a temporary workaround, not a permanent fix.

    I Agree! Personally I would never Block Inheritance. I would look at the issue and see what doesn't work, but its not my system. I just need to apply a policy to the OU where it is blocked to and appliy the policy on a dummy OU and test what happens and take it from there.

    Any Ideas?
