Group Policy is a highly contested area in the world of configuration management on Windows. Most enterprises have years of time invested in typically non-version controlled and non-commented group policies that have been applied organically to a sprawling list of organizational units as the needs of the company have changed. Infrastucture as code gives you the awesome power of modeling the state of all your systems regardless of where they live, but if group policy is hiding changes behind the scenes resolving those conflicts can be a hair-pulling experience.
