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.

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.

is this a self signed certificate or one that was purchased?
