Reset IE8 Homepage via Group Policy
Posted on 2011-03-04
We are on windows server 2008 Active Directory, windows XP clients running IE 8. I am trying to reset all client machine's homepage setting to company intranet site and prevent them from changing it. And trying to accomplish this via group policy.
So far I have created a custom GPO (from starter GPOs) and enabled "disable changing home page setting" and input the home page address. Created a new OU and made a test PC member of that OU. Link the new GPO to that OU and and it is enforced/enabled. I have refreshed the group policy (gpupdate /force) on the test PC. And...still nothing. No effect on IT setting. I need some advise on what am I missing/doing wrong. Your input is appreciated.
