    GPO issues


    I have a strange GPO problem which I hope someone might throw some light on for me!

    At the moment we use GPO to deliver restrictions to student desktops, now I went to change the GPO that deals with the IE URLS to change the hompage - this works for staff but stays on old value for students.

    I have use the GP Results Wizard and it points to our Default Domain Policy when you run it as some users it shows the new page and if you run as another student it tells you the policy is applied in the correct order but shows the old value ie the old Homepage.

    If anyone can throw any light on it I would be most grateful!

    The GPO Results wizard is good - but it lets you down when it comes to what is really happening at the PC.

    You need to run MMC with the Resultant Set of Polict (RSoP) snap-in. You can run this remotely - ie selecting the station and logged on user when you run the gather data wizard.

    It shows you the policies that have been processed - an indication of errors and the winning policy for each setting. But rather than simply modelling the result - it shows what is really happening.

    Quite honestly an invaluable tool in sorting out GPO related issues.
