I recently inherited this network about 2 months ago. Polices and such
were kinda messed up and Im currently in the process of modifying them to
make them work how they should and organizing them. I recently found a
problem in that a policy that is associated with the parent container of a
user takes precedence over a policy that is associated directly with the
user. I have a search policy set up that is associated with the partition
root of the user and the search order is set to user, group, container.

Now, sinces its set to user, group, container, shouldnt it stop searching
when it finds a policy associated with the user? If I move the user up one
level and then associated a user policy with the user it works fine.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
