Disabling a Local Group Policy Setting
Posted on 2006-05-18
Can someone please help with group policy:
Is there a script out there that will disable a LOCAL group policy setting on all computers in a domain. I would like to uncheck/disable the setting "Enable Automatic Configuration" found in \User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Connection\Automatic Browswer Configuration.
The reason for this is that we are going away from using the Auto-Config URL(.ins file) found on the local group policy on our clients and using the Domain Group Policy to configure our IE Settings. The problem we are having is that the clients are not grabbing the Automatic Browswer Configuration settings from the Domain group policy. The local group policy for that settings is taking precedence. In the domain group policy, the "Enable Automatic Configuration" is left unchecked, which is what we would like to implement.
We are running Win 2003 Active Directory with Windows XP SP1 and SP2 clients. If someone has a solution, please help. Thanks!
