Microsoft Windows NT created a feature of Group Policy for controlling the work environment of user accounts and computer accounts. It gives centralized management and configuration of the operating system, in an Active Directory environment. A set of Group Policy configurations are called a Group Policy Object (GPO). The local version is known as Local Group Policy (LGPO).

Group Policy Objects is processed in the following steps:

  • Local: Any settings in the computer’s Local Policy. Windows Vista and Windows version allow individual group policy per account. Apart from Windows Vista, other version store only one group Policy.
  • Site: Any Group Policies associated with an
  •  site in which the computer resides, and if there is multiple group policy, then they are processed with administrator way.
  • Domain: Computer resides if any group policy is associated with the windows domain. Again, if there is multiple group policy, then it’s processed according to the administrator.
  • Organizational Unit: Group Policy is assigned to the Active Directory Organizational Unit (OU) in which user or Computer is placed. If OU are linked with multiple sites, then it’s processed according to the administrator.
