I have a number of machines in MDT that belong to multiple roles. Nothing fancy there. However, in role A (which applies to most machines) the MachineObjectOU is specified, and in role B (which only applies to certain machines) a different MachineObjectOU is specified because those machines need to appear somewhere different in the directory. How do I guarantee that MDT will read settings from role B? Is it the order of roles in the list in the machine properties window?

The choice is based on the order they are listed in in your Roles tab. The first one it loads is the one that will be retained at the end of the list.

So you're saying that B cannot overwrite settings applied by A? –  cmv Aug 6 '11 at 4:23
