I am new to using group policies and active directory. I am wanting to enforce policies but when I apply them they only seem to be applied to the server. For example on the server I changed the policy and forced a homepage, and enabled the policy that prevents changing the homepage. Now the server homepage is set but if I log in on a different machine it is not set.
I used gpupdate /force and even waited about 2 hours after applying it and I still see no results. Is there something I am missing. Here is what I did:
Chose User Configuration
Chose Windows Settings
Chose I.E. Mantenance
Double Clicked Important URLS and entered the url
then went to computer configuration
Chose Administrative Templates
Chose Windows Componenets
Chose internet explorer
Chose to not allow users to access the general page
Then I exited out and did a gpupdate /force
However after doing this nothing seems to have changed. the default page on the workstation I am testing is still google and I can enter and change the default homepage.
