Hi Martin,

I would argue that from a group policy prospective neither wins. 

If you have a machine policy, it will create registry keys in the Machine
area. If you have a User policy, it will create registry keys in the User
area. As such they are never at odds and both win.

It is then up to the application to decide which of the registry keys to
use, which really means the application designer decides which is more
likely to be correct.

It generally depends upon the setting but in most cases where Admin.
Templates are concerned, the machine policy wins.

Hello,

Just a general question; if a user policy and a machine policy are at odds,
who wins?
