    Re: Map printer when user logs on

    It worked using group policies.

    Thank you all for answering.

    Re: Account locked out depending on the person’s location

    I found and fixed the problem.

    There was indeed an old credential in the windows credential manager.
    I deleted this and the problem is gone.

    Thank you all for the help

    Re: Account locked out depending on the person’s location

    Well, as I have the laptop here with me now, I cannot test it.
    I will ask my client to try several things when he gets home.

    I’m also gonna try connecting to RDP without the VPN.
    We set up a port forwarding on our netscreen to RDP.

    I’ll see what that does.

    Thanks for the help

    Re: Account locked out depending on the person’s location

    Windows 7 Professional.

    I have looked in the credential manager on the laptop itself, and it still had a credential to the old domain account, I removed that.

    He uses the same laptop in the office and at home.

    in reply to: Profiles #381319

    Re: Profiles

    Are those Win 7 computers joined to your domain?

    What policy are you using to redirect the folders?

    User config -> Preferences -> Windows settings -> Folder Redirection ?

    It seems to me there is a problem with the rights tho.

    Re: Prevent users from running executables from usb sticks

    You could try using Applocker, but that is only included in 7 Ultimate or Enterprise.
    Applocker can disable users from running any exe, bat, vbs,.. besides those that arei n the program files.

    Or you could use local software restriction policies.
    Enough info on that on google.

    in reply to: WMI Filtering #381317

    Re: WMI Filtering

    You put me in the right direction!

    It works now.
    There’s a computer policy called: Only allow local user profiles and Prevent Roaming Profile changes from propagating to the server.

    It’s in Computer Configuration – Policies – Administrative Templates – System/User Profiles.

    In combination with the loopback policy my problem is fixed.

    Many many thanks!

    Re: Office365beta

    We’ve been testing it for a few days now. Maybe for potential clients.

    It’s amazing how well structured it all is.

    The outlook web access, word, excel, .. plugins work very smooth in combination with silverlight and IE9.

    The sharepoint function is amazing; directly editing files in your web browser, sharing documents, …

    Google docs is nothing compared to 365

    in reply to: IE 8 problem #381314

    Re: IE 8 problem

    Try changing the Windows theme to default and see if you still have the same problem.

    if not this is what worked for me a while ago

    Start -> Control Panel -> Switch on to the Classic View
    Open the accessibility options and go to the display tab
    There will be a small check box with says use high contrast

    Check that and xlick on apply, now your whole computer will turn black in color… Not to worry about it.
    Now unckeck the same box (Use high contrast) again click on apply and ok.

    in reply to: Logonscript not running for Windows 7 #381313

    Re: Logonscript not running for Windows 7

    What do you mean with not running?

    It doesn’t start? It gives errors? Is it a script in the startup folder? Is it a policy?
    A little more information might help :)

    in reply to: WMI Filtering #381312

    Re: WMI Filtering

    I’m talking about user settings here.

    Example: We have a user named user1.

    Whenever user1 logs on to the TS he should get the necessary drives mapped, internet security, …

    But whenever the same user1 logs in into his laptop (which is joined to the domain) he should not get those drives, etc…

    The biggest problem is that the users’ personal folders and files (desktop, images, documents,…) are also on our file server and are mapped when he logs on.
    So whenever the user logs in at home on the laptop he cannot access his own files because they are on the fileserver.

    The goal is to have 2 seperate desktops. 1 laptop + 1 TS.

    Kinda hard to explain :o

    in reply to: WMI Filtering #381311

    Re: WMI Filtering

    Our policies are already applied using security groups from our active directory and not authenticated users.

    Our users login to terminal servers, that’s when the policies are applied.
    But some users also have a domain laptop. When they log in to their laptop, the policies are also applied.

    Here’s my problem with a bit more details.

    Re: WMI Filtering

    Yes, I got that part. I just don’t understand what filter/policy to use to deny a policy to a specified OU.

    I’ll keep googling

    Re: WMI Filtering

    Since I posted my first thread I have tried learning the basics of WMI Filtering (which seems to be pretty tough. Things like depolying software (flash, java, …)

    I haven’t really discovered on how I can deny policies (altought it sounds pretty simple).

    Re: HP Printer software install Win 7

    Did you try running it as an administrator?

    Did you download this driver?

    Try disabling your firewall when installing. That might give some trouble too.

    in reply to: Printing to local printer from inside VPN session #381306

    Re: Printing to local printer from inside VPN session

    Make sure “Printers” is ticked in the Local Sources settings of the RDP.

    Try adding the driver of the printer home to the PC in the office. That might be the problem.

    Re: Program needs admin privs

    Have you tried uninstalling the program and installing it again?

    Or you can try to go to Control Pannel – User accounts and change the settings voor user account management.

    Re: Windows 7 SP1 mass failure

    This is a known problem when rolling out sp1.

    You must uninstall microsoft security essentials before applying sp1.

    I have had the same problem and that solution worked for me.

    Re: Prevent GPO’s on computers in domain.

    If I’m correct you are talking about the OU with the win7 computers? That’s where I deny the users drive mapping policies?

    in reply to: Prevent GPO’s on computers in domain. #381300

    Re: Prevent GPO’s on computers in domain.

    The drive maps policy is defined in the user configuration (windows settings – drive maps).

    if I add the computers to an OU and deny all group policies. Won’t the domain user logging override this setting?

    I have never really used WMI filtering before. I’ll take a look at it. Any tips where to start?

    So I create a new OU, add all the computers (have to use the computer name?) that are joined to the domain. Then use WMI filtering to prevent reading those policies.

    Then again, won’t the user’s policies override this setting?

    Thanks
