In a 2008r2 Active Directory environnement , I'm doing a GPO named BasicServerGPO for every 2008r2 server on my domain. The GPO is linked to the good OU in which all my servers are. The gpo is enabled with all defaults options.
Basically, I just want to add the computer icon on the desktop of every servers we have. I want to do it via a GPO registry change and not a login script.
The GPO I've done is doing this:
Computer configuration - Preferences - Windows Settings - Registry :
Key path: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: 00000000
At 00000000, when doing it manually on a server regedit mmc, the computer icon appears on the desktop.But, when I try to push the registry change via a GPO, it's not working.
What is missing?
