Setting status indicators allows the standard rules for policies to be changed.
Block policy inheritance
Set for containers for which you do not want higher-ranking policies to apply (right-click the object in the Properties navigation window).
If you do not want a container object to inherit a policy from a higher object, select Block Policy Inheritance to prevent this. If Block Policy Inheritance has been selected for a container object it will not be affected by higher-ranking policy settings (exception: No Override activated when policy was assigned).
Set during assignment process this policy cannot be overridden by another policy.
The further away the policy assignment with No Override is from the target object, the stronger the effect of this policy will be for all the lower-ranking container objects. This means that a higher ranking container subject to No Override overrides the policy settings of a lower ranking container. So, for example a domain policy can be defined and its settings cannot be overridden, even if Block policy inheritance has been set for an OU!
