comment LDAP Breaking when moving user
No doubt. I have run into a few people that don't really fit. I could probably just have everyone in a high level OU, like how some places make one for each location. But I am primarily sorted them for printer reasons. Almost all settings will be done on a high level GP. I do see the merit to your suggestion though. I could use item level targeting and just hit groups instead. Kind of a moot point now though as it is all done and seems to be working fine. But I will keep it in mind for the future.

comment LDAP Breaking when moving user
Yes, their LDAP setup is not very clear and the documentation leaves a lot to be desired. From what I can tell the Group Schema isn't even needed. I did want to set it to distinguishedName as that seems to be the way Microsoft is going. However, this application only really supports old specs despite being "up to date" software. So it didn't really seem to be working. Thanks for the suggestions.

Tried it on several more accounts and that was it. Just needed to delete the imported accounts, re-import the LDAP data and re-add the users. Thanks for your help.

I think you might be right. I just tested deleting and re-adding my account and it worked. Gonna test some more. Thanks

Yep, that was it. So I was right, it was something stupidly easy. @joeqwerty if you want to convert your comment into a answer I will mark it as such. Thanks

Hmm okay. You are most likely right. Changing to merge mode should be fine I would guess.

Ok, so, I think I found the real problem, but I'm not sure of the solution. The Desktop GP object is overwriting the IT one. The IT should apply to the user account and if the computer isn't in the Desktops OU it works. But after moving to Desktops OU the Desktop GP overwrites the IT User config and it doesn't even show up as a denied GPO...

I first set it up as a User Config, tested a Computer config later. Yeah I figured Loopback wouldn't do anything, so I hadn't even bothered with it at first. I'm trying to set User, Policies, Windows Settings, Printer Connections(Deployed Printers).
