I am part of a team of IT Engineers who are currently revamping a large organisation.
The previous IT department had some Group Policy objects in place for installing software(s), applying security related changes to machines, etc, etc.
On some of the group policy objects, Loopback processing (Merge Mode) is enabled.. See below for an example :
As loopback processing isn't something you can just enable to assist one policy (In other words it's global), what affect will this have on the computers?
If I've understood correctly, merge mode will allow you to define computer policies and apply them to users? Or is it.. Allow user configurations to be applied to computers??
If merge mode will allow user configurations to be applied on a computer level, how will the example policy affect computers?
