What happens is that, since the policy is linked to the domain, all computer 
accounts will process it. This means that the domain policy will override the 
local policy on those computers just like it would for any other setting. You 
can, of course, set Block Inheritance on any OU that you don’t wish to have 
receive that policy.

I was hoping to get some clarity on this-- by setting a domain policy accounts 
on the local machine get affected ? Or the domain passwd policy overwrites any 
passwd policy set locally on a machine ?

Hey guys, 

I just implemented a password policy for our domain.  With this affect local 
computer accounts as well?  I do know that domain policies super seed local 
computer polices.
