  • GPO settings conflict with each other

    I'm trying to set the home page of the domain's clients to http://xyz.com and stop users from changing their home page using a GPO. But what's happening is the user's home page is not being updated to http://xyz.com by the GPO because another setting, the setting which stops users from changing their home page is also stopping the GPO from setting it.

    Settings are:
    User Configuration/Windows Settings/Internet Explorer Maintenance/URLs/Important URLs/Home Page URL = http://xyz.com

    User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Disable changing home page settings = TRUE

    So how can I set all user's home pages plus stop them from changing this setting using a GPO?

    Domain is on a Windows 2003 server with Win2K & WinXP clients.

      allthough i don't think that what you did should cause this kind of a problem, a solution could be setting every one of the settings in a diffrent GPO and apply the one with the homepage first in order of applience.

        Your settings should work - I have just verified that and the GPO is applied and enforced just fine - the home page is set and the and greyed out.

        I have configured the settings in the same GPO.

        Do you get any errors related to GPO processing ? You might want to enable verbose logging for the GPO processing and take a look at the logs: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/221833/
