Hi,

Well, I don't know where you are stucked! let me once again repharase all things

Open "Active Directory Users and Computers", and then select OU (if you want to apply all your organization, select root domain) and open property. Click "Group Policy" tab, click [New] or [Edit] and open "Group Policy" window. Click "User Configuration"->"Windows Settings"->"Internet Explorer Maintenance"->"Connection"->"Automatic Browser Configuration" and open "Property". Check [Automatic detect configuration settings].

Look at attached Snap

Now, Once you applied this settings on Windows 2003 server, then go to one of the client machine and make sure that this machine is part of domain and pointing to correct DNS server under TCP/IP settings, the preffered IP for DNS should be your internal DNS server.
Now when you make these things sure, now restart this client PC and see if the settings take effect?

If it doesn't take effect, then let me know:
1. Which OS & IE version clients are using?
2. Can you post a snap shot where actually you are applying Group Policy?

Hi,

It should be somehwere under User Configuration --> Administrative Templates
--> Windows Components --> Internet Explorer.
In right pane, double click the entry "Changing Automatic
Configuration settings". Select "Enabled" and click OK to apply it.

That option is already checked in the default domain policy but it is not showing up for systems.We are deploying proxy services and require the option as mentioned in the above screen shot to be checked in internetoptions/connections/lansettings.

Please guide me with steps to achive the same.

Hi,

If you have enabled setting at here : User Configuration->Windows Settings->Internet Explorer Maintenance->Connection->Automatic Browser Configuration

Then

You must have to set the "Preference Mode" to force these policies become active for IE and for that the link is: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/274846

Do it and then check after rstarting the machine or run gpupdate /force
