    Automatic detect settings GPO

    Hi!

    I use a small tutorial to configure a GPO for automatic detect settings. My proxy server use wpad.dat file and most of the clients are window 7.

    It looks like GPO is not working fine. I unchecked my automatic detect settings and restarted my computer but it didnt take the GPO settings as automatic detect settings was not checked. I used gpupdate /force but it didnt work.

    What should i do to make it working.

    Regards,

    As you applying a user setting to a workstations OU, assumed that contains computer objects, you will need to enable Loopback processing in merge mode. The setting should then hopefully work.

    Its under user configuration.

    user configuration -> window settings -> internet explorer maintenance -> connection -> automatic detect settings

    I would verify that the settings are in the Computer section and/or Loopback processing is enabled in merge mode, if it has to be applied at that level and to apply as a user setting and confirm if the policy is actually applying to the machine using RsOP feature within GPMC and/or runnign the gpresult command with appropriate switches.

    Look at using RsOP and running the gpresult /v >GPOs.txt command locally on the machine where the GPO should be taking effect.

    Where have you applied the policy within the AD structure?
