Disabling a group's inheritance
In the group structure, subgroups initially and automatically inherit the locations, policies, and settings from their parent group. By default, inheritance is enabled for every group. You can disable inheritance so that you can configure separate security settings for a subgroup. If you make changes and later enable inheritance, any changes that you made in the subgroup's settings are overwritten.
Policies that come from the cloud do not follow the
Symantec Endpoint Protection Managerpolicy inheritance configuration. Instead, they follow the inheritance rules that are defined in the cloud.
