GPO to disable  exchange cached mode

Posted on 2007-07-31
Last Modified: 2008-05-31
I have applied a GPO for users (user setting) that disables the exchange cached mode in their MSOutlook 2007.
The Gpo doesn't get applied. when I run the GPRESULT it shows that the GPO wasn't applied because it was filtered out.
I checked the authenticated users in the default domain policy and they have read permission applied.

any idea?

    It should show that it's filtered out for the COMPUTER configuration, but is applied for the USER config.  Double-check that depending on which configuration you applied the settings.  We'll go from there.

    you are right it's filtered out in Computer settings, but in user settings it's not showing up

    I fixed it, I didn't have the user under the OU where the GPO is applied to. Though in the filter there is autheticated users.

    when the authenticated users are under security filtering, does that mean GPO will apply to all of them?
    Or do I have to put the user under the OU to which  the GPO is applied to?

    Every new GPO you created has authenticated users as Read permissons by Default.  You still have to have the users you want the policy applied to within the OU you have your GPO set to.
