    Intranet Shortcut Only Working on Some Accounts

    We have Spiceworks set up internally and awaiting SLT approval but I've run into a problem with the shortcut on Windows 7 which is preventing us releasing it to the staff.

    -All of our accounts can access the portal by hostname on XP but only some can access it on Windows 7.
    -All accounts can access it by IP address, but that doesn't seem to work with SSO so isn't an option.
    -Local admin account can access it.
    -Domain admin can access it.
    -One entry in DNS to the correct IP address.
    -Editing the hosts file doesn't make a difference

    It works fine using our Pre-Prep login but not using the student login. I did a GP report and checked all options applied by the Pre-Prep GPO but nothing seems applicable.

    The other difference between these accounts is that the student account loads a mandatory profile from the server whereas the Pre-Prep account loads the local default one and settings are applied by the GPO. The domain admin account also uses the local default profile.

    Is there something I need to change to get Windows 7 mandatory profiles to be able to resolve intranet names?

    Nothing? Hmm.

    I think I've narrowed it down to something wrong in the v2 profiles. Those are the only one's that aren't resolving the name properly. I don't know enough about them to know what it is that's wrong. Any ideas?

    We managed to resolve this. So for anybody that may get similar symptoms:

    In the V2 hive the ProxyEnabled setting was set to 1 so we changed it to 0, to disable the proxy, and everyone can access the internal address now.
