When you login into a Domain with DLU rights, you break connection with the Domain. Here's how you can avoid that.

  1. Create an IT group as well as a Domain User Group.
  2. Create a DLU user policy with Admin rights to the PC, and assign it to the IT group.
  3. Create a second DLU user policy (don't change any settings) and assign it to the Domain User Group.
  4. Create a third DLU user policy (with regular user rights). Add a trustee for the Domain user group and uncheck all rights for it.
  5. Now you can apply the DLU Regular User policy to the whole container without any problems, and all users that are part of the Domain won't have any problems logging in.
