HI All:

I am trying to setup a Group Policy to start Internet Explorer on all PCs and direct them to our new intranet.

The other thing I am trying to do is implement sharepoint services - Can anyone give me some detailed instructions on both of these questions?

Thanks!

Hi,

to 1: you could set the default start page in your GPO (start -> run -> mmc and ad the Group Policy editor)
under Userconfiguration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer - > URLS you could set the URL to your default Intranet page.

to 2: which informations do you need? i need more detailed informations!

Kind Regards

I will go ahead and try completing the install on Saturday and let you know how it goes.  I had a quick question though - I found out that Sharepoint 2.0 is on our server and when I go too Https://localhost it gives me a certificate error.  Is their a reason for this?? If so, will I have this same problem with 3.0 also.

Thanks.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Sharepoint services was stopped but a bunch of other stuff in IIS in running.  Let it be known that I have taken this position over as network admin of this school after 5 network admins within the last year who have quit had their hands in this system.

So I am also trying to clean up this server- I am actually going to raise the point value of this question.
