Wait, I think i see the explanation in the Loopback policy help section.

To use this setting, select one of the following modes from the Mode box:

--   "Replace" indicates that the user settings defined in the computer's Group 
Policy objects replace the user settings normally applied to the user.

--   "Merge" indicates that the user settings defined in the computer's Group 
Policy objects and the user settings normally applied to the user are combined. 
If the settings conflict, the user settings in the computer's Group Policy 
objects take precedence over the user's normal settings.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the user's Group Policy 
objects determines which user settings apply.

Note: This setting is effective only when both the computer account and the 
user account are in Windows 2000 domains.

Subject: [gptalk] Which policy/settings win

I am at a university, and we have a zillion OU's for the various colleges and 
departments within the university.

In my lab, I have loopback policy enabled and set to merge.  I have folder 
redirection setup via Computer policy with loopback to get the user part of 
those settings.

If a user logs onto my computers and has conflicting user policies from the 
policies that I have setup for the users, which policy wins?


Thanks
