Here’s another example of this course not being accurate. Took the GPO quiz, saved my answers and one question chose a different answer than what I did. It gave me a wrong answer when I answered the question correctly.

Concerning Question 14 of this Quiz comment image?width=1920), please note that pauliscool.jpg is located in a sub-OU, whereas the itFlee OU has itflogo.jpg, which should apply to this OU. Yet the quiz says that it should be pauliscool.jpg. Please clarify.

A blue exclamation point that’s displayed next to an OU container in GPMC indicates that the container has Block Inheritance enabled, which means that settings made to parent containers aren’t applied to the OU.

Please help me understand – Question 11.

Potential Spoiler
The order of precedence takes into account Sub OUs so the order would be:

Low > High Precedence
Local > Site > Domain > (Parent) OU > Sub OU > Enforced

The reason I selected itflogo.jpg is because nothing above the sub OU is enforced. I believe my mistake was in thinking that the administrators sub OU was somehow isolated from the parent OU because inheritance is disabled & not considering the opposite direction.

My question then is this.. If the Sub OU takes precedence over the Parent OU anyways, then what is / would be a reason for disabling inheritance on a Sub OU? It seems to me that disabling inheritance would be pointless beyond the point of OU.

Hi profile avatar Christian Sanchez

The reason for disabling inheritance on a child organizational unit (OU) allows you to override the Group Policy settings and policies inherited from the parent OU. This can be useful if you want to apply different policies to the child OU or if you want to exclude certain policies from being applied to the child OU.
