This is from Derek Melber, whom you know. Since he used to work at
DesktopStandard, I asked him this question and this was his response:


Filtered by ancestor: Not done often, but for example, for Registry, you can
create a Collection, set the Item-level targeting on the collection, then
create a Registry item under the collection, which will then have a ancestor
filter set on it. The policy subjects do not allow item-level targeting at
this point... maybe in future!

Disabled directly: Red circle with line through it on toolbar (when the
policy is highlighted)

Disabled by ancestor: Red circle with line through it on toolbar (when the
policy subject is highlighted... IE Registry on left list)

Hi everyone,


I have been doing some playing with Group Policy Preferences and come to the
conclusion that there is an awful lot of flexibility in what you can do.
Most of it makes intuitive sense, but I am confused by three settings that
are displayed when you select a preference setting, but I cannot see how to
change them. These three settings are:-


Filtered by Ancestor

Disabled Directly

Disabled by Ancestor


All are set to NO. There is another setting, Filtered Directly which you can
toggle by adding an entry under targeting.


I am guessing that "Filtered by Ancestor" says that if it fails the filter
on one preference, don't bother processing future preferences, but I cannot
see how you activate it.


Any ideas?
