- [Voiceover] Sometimes we find ourselves in a position…where the default processing order…in the application and inheritance…of group policy objects doesn't necessarily work for us.…Fortunately, Microsoft has given us a couple of exceptions…that we can throw in to the mix here.…And so I want to go over them with you now,…but before I do, I want to emphasize the word "exception."…And what I mean by that…is what I'm gonna show you in this lesson…I want you to use sparingly. Okay?…These should be the exceptions to the rule.…
A well-designed network would go ahead…and utilize the default processing order.…It's only when you find yourself in a position…that it just won't work.…So here on the screen I have our LSDOU model,…and so this would be the default processing order.…And I want to use this to illustrate these two exceptions.…The first one is something called "block inheritance."…Block inheritance is something you would apply…to a specific container…that you would link group policy objects to.…And typically it would be a container lower down…
