Avoid conflicts with Group Policy and Microsoft Endpoint Manager – Make your MDM Policies Win

When integrating your Windows 10 devices into Microsoft Endpoint Manager, you may encounter policy conflicts where the same setting is configured both on-premises via GPO and Intune. When this happens it can be a complete nightmare, so in this post I will show you how to configure Microsoft Endpoint Manager so that your MDM policies rein over GPO.

Lets get to it and launch Microsoft Endpoint Manager dashboard –> Go to Devices –> Configuration Profile –> Create Profile

Platform – Windows 10 and later
Profile – Custom

Click Create

Click Add and enter the below

Name: ConflictPolicyConflict
Description: Enter value if required
OMA-URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/ControlPolicyConflict/MDMWinsOverGP
Data type: Integer
Value: 1

Click Save –> Press Next

If you are using Scope Tags – Define your tags and Press Next

Define your selected groups of machines for the profile and Press Next

Define applicability rules if in use and Press Next

Press Create

This will now force MDM Policies to win over Group Policies assigned to a Windows 10 device.
