    Group Policy issues (overwriting)

    Hi

    Got the Default Domain GP - Proxy set

    Set a Student GP - set a different proxy - doesn't work - default domain wins

    Check GP modelling and Student GP should win through (according to order of preference and results)

    Is this anything to do with Printer Policy that is set to "merge" policies.

    J,

    Why not remove the proxy from the default domain policy and have it applied on students and the ones that need a different proxy set their gpo to reflect this.

    Hi

    I know - but it just seems very odd that it is doing this. The same is the issue with Passwords. I want Staff to have a Complex password and Students to be able to set a normal one.

    Why is Default Domain Policy over-writing everything and yet everything says it shouldn't be.

    On Printers Script Policy - Loopback processing mode is set to Merge

    There is no Loopback enabled on Student GPO

    Domain Policy is down at Number 16 on the list on the machine for precedence. Everything else above it.

    If I set Enforced to on should that make it work for sure? I just don't want to experiment too much and take out the network with everyone using it. Working in a small school we area all out of the building by 6pm and it is closed at weekends so no time to play without hurting anyone!

    HI

    Is your default domain policy enforced.

    Nope. Just double-checked.

    Hi

    Is this on all machines or just one?

    Is the time on the client and the server the same?

    Have you tried knowing the client off the domain and putting it back?

    What does gpresults and rsop say?

    Do you have any errors in eventvwr of domain controller or client?

    Hi

    Sorry I forgot

    Do you have wmi filters on the policies that do not apply.

    Is the policy that overwrites the corrupt and does it have the correct adm for ie. Old adms do not always apply to new versions of internet explorer?

    try an rsop.msc on one of the machines and it will inform you of all the polices aplyed and errors aplying some GPO's if you do a gpresult it will tell you which haven't been aplyed and why hope this helps. Gpresult will also say if wmi filters are blocking policys aplying
