Because an Active Directory user may also be included in Active Directory groups and a Spotlight user may have different roles configured, it is possible for conflicting permission settings to happen.
Here are some rules for resolving permissions conflicts:
- “Administrator” role generally takes precedence over “Non Administrator” role.
- “Deny” permissions generally take precedence over “Allow” permissions.
