Tricky Group Policy question :-S

Or maybe not for some of you.

In our offices we have a number of staff and a number of client machines, each has a user and a computer policy.

Recently we won another contract which requires a number of our client machines to have a different branded wallpaper and a certain default home page.

I placed these PC's in a sub OU of that office's OU and placed a loopback computer policy on that OU to get the different wallpaper.

However, as the users are still using the same generic logon to log onto these machines that are in the sub-OU, they are getting the other default webpage that users in the main OU require.

For example

Client Users-
     Reading Office -
              Reading Client User (Using Client User GP)

Client Computers
     Reading Office -
              Reading Client Computer (Using Client Computer GP)
                      Reading Client Computer SubOU (Using Client Computer GP2 - with Loopback for wallpaper) <<<--- I need to get these machines to have a different default website

So my question is this.

Is there a way to force a different default homepage on those machines in the sub-OU without having to give them a different username for the machines?

Many Thanks
Andy

So I am clear, are you saying that you have homepages set on the users OU thate users re in, but you need a certain group of PCs to have a different wallpaper even for those users?

Hi Oli,

Sorry for the confusion, the client users all use the same generic logon, that sets their homepage, but I need it setting according to the machine they log onto.

Hope that helps

Hi A4eIT,

Sorry I haven't got back to you on this, I am afraid I can't shed any more light on this I am afraid, hopefully someone else will.

Regards,
