  • Proxy restrictions using GPO

    Hi,

    I'm trying to set up GPOs on a 2003 server. The policy in question is using User Configuration and Proxy settings, but I can't get it to work.

    Can someone give me an idea as to what I've done wrong? Or maybe a walkthrough.

    TIA

    Hi Mate,

    First the simple questions (i apologise !!)

    a) The GP object is set on a user defined OU with your Users in it ?
    b) You have rebooted the PC which you are testing against to refresh policy ?
    c) You are running 200\XP with IE5+ on the clients ?
    d) You do not have any otehr GPO's setting conflicting proxy details that will affect the OU in question ?
    e) The user you are tesing has Apply and Read permissions on the GPO ?

    If the client is XP then run

    gpupdate /target:user /force

    If the client is 2000 run

    secedit /refreshpolicy user_policy /enforce

    This will force the client to refresh the policies applied on it.

      Ok, I've got it working, but now how I'd like.

      WHat I've done is create an OU called Standard Users. I've applied a policy to this OU called Proxytest.

      If I move the Test user (Called atest) into the Standard Users OU it works fine. However, I'm trying to use a group, but when I put the group (Called proxy) into the Standard Users OU it fails to run.

      Any ideas??

        a) The GP object is set on a user defined OU with your Users in it ?
        Yes. Works with a User, but not a User Group

        b) You have rebooted the PC which you are testing against to refresh policy ?
        Yes. Also tried running the Modelling scenario

        c) You are running 200\XP with IE5+ on the clients ?
        XP on the client, and 2003 on the server

        d) You do not have any otehr GPO's setting conflicting proxy details that will affect the OU in question ?
        Only other policy are the default domain & DC policies. Neither of which have anything that would conflict

        e) The user you are tesing has Apply and Read permissions on the GPO ?
        Yes, it has the equivalent XP settings. I'm using the GPMC.

        Thx

          That's not possible, Group Policies apply to Users and Computers not groups.

          You can use groups to filter which users get the policy applied and which Do not but you can't set it up like you want to. I'm not sure why you would want to do it like that anyway.

          By using Child OU's and GPO filtering you can acheieve the same affect.

            Ok, that'll explain why I couldn't get it to work.
