Proxy Settings will not update changes via Group Policy
Posted on 2008-10-29
On our domain, we use AD Group Policy to push out proxy settings to the computers/users. We also have enabled "Make Proxy Settings per machine."
"Disable changing proxy settings" is NOT configured at all.
Now, I'm trying to push out a change to the proxy settings. We have added an exclusion to the sites that bypass the proxy.
Logging in as a regular user that already has a local profile created (ie... they've logged in to that workstation before) fails to update the proxy settings with the new exclusion, and they cannot access the site. If I use Group Policy Management to run the GP Results for that user on that machine, the report says that they have the new exclusion, but the local workstation doesn't appear to update properly.
However, if I log in to that workstation as an administrator, the new proxy settings are downloaded and applied to ALL users, including the old regular user who coudn't receive the update before the admin login. We have 90 workstations spread out over 200 miles, and I'm not keen on logging in to every workstation as an administrator to force the update.
Why won't the ammended proxy settings replicate to the workstations when a regular user logs in even though GP Management says that they should have the new setting? Is there a way to force this change without logging in to every workstation administratively?
