Old GPO keeps applying
Posted on 2011-05-09
I have a domain windows 2003 (SP2) that has some gpo configured.
Im having some problems with one gpo that keeps applying the old seetings.
The gpo is configured to set the default home page for IE to our intranet server. A couple of weeks ago we changed the gpo to point the default home page to our new intranet server(new url). Basically we edited existing gpo t
Now some WinXP machines keep having the old intranet server as default home page...and what is weird is that sometimes the same machine works fine but the next day shows the old home page again.
We have tried gpupdate /force in all machines, we have been looking all gpo to see if there is any other gpo pointing to the old intranet serve, DNS,r..we cant find where is the problem.
We have tried to reset internet options from the gpo...but again this random problem keeps happening.
After burning our brains we found a registry key on WinXp that was pointing to the old intranet url. We manually changed to the new url. But we cannot manually do this for 250 machines. It must have another way.
How can I remove the old settings? Is there any sort of cache in the server or in the WinXP? Keep in mind the the gpo is the same one, we didnt create a new one, we just edited the defaultl home page settings to point to a new url. Any idea guys?
