Problem with GPO

Hi, I have a problem with one of my GPO on the domain it is attached to OU that have users and is configured to set proxy parameters. I change a proxy address two days ago and when you restart the pc new settings will apply but after couple of hours user will get old proxy settings back. I added two DCGC 2008 to domain recently but I do not see problems with any other GPOs except this one. If I open proxy GPO and under the setting i see new settings and there is no other GPO that deliver proxy setting except this one.
I also check the AD replication and it works with no problem.
Thanks

Have you checked the rsop.msc to see if the old proxy settings are still being applied some how locally to the machine? Is this just a few computers or is it everyone? For testing purposes you could try creating a test user with new OU apply the policy and see if it works for you. If the policy works for new users that might be legacy settings from the previous GPO.
Is there any other GPO which is inherited to Same OU
Run RSOP.msc from a client which is affected, Right Click Properties (computer config/user config )and check you could see any other GPO is present

Confirm other GPO are not enbled with Proxy Settings

i did check RSOP and after the inicial login it will show new settings and when users report that they have a old settings if i run rsop it will show old ones, strange but each time it will state that settings are applyed with same GPO????????? by the name proxysws and if you check GPO you will found a new settings with in.
I did check all other GPOs and non of them have a proxy settings specified.

Run this command - secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce

That will probably only do the same thing as logging on and off. I would be tempted to delete and recreate the policy as it may have corrupted.

Hi, i found what the problem was, for some reason on one of the DC the GPO was not replaced so when users get gpo form that DC it gets a old copy.
Thanks all for help
GPO modified in one DC will be replicated to all other DCs.

Computer gets Group policy applied based on the OU where GPO is linked

I guess GPO was not linked correctly to OU where this machines where, that is the reason we were asking is there was any other policy in place with Old configuration
