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

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.
