  • Group Policy circumvent using local logon

    Hi,

    I've so far failed to get any info on the web re this so here goes.
    XPSP2 Clients , W2k3 Dcs, active directory and GPOs enforced.
    Our current scenario involves our roaming user logging on to their laptops using cached domain account details. This works fine except for certain conditions involving group policy. There are several conditions such as proxy server settings that we do not want enforced when users are off the corporate LAN. We are only starting to discover the potential of GPOs and we can see this issue developing the more we enforce group policy objects on the domain.
    What is the right direction to take in order to address this situation?

    Thanks for reading and thanks for responding.

    There is no method to turn GPO's off temporarily. They either apply, or they don't. In case of the proxy, you might want to look at other ways to configure it. Think about a logon script, or perhaps 'use automatic configuration script' in IE. With ISA as a proxy there are still other methods.

      You may set loopback processing on the machine account if it does not connect to the network.
