Managing Cache mode in Group Policy

By default we do not allow users to enable Outlook Cache Mode.  We are using Outlook 2010.
We now have a select group of users who will need to do that, so we created an OU and in the administrative template for Outlook 2010/Account Settings / Exchange / Cache Exchange Mode made the settings as are shown in fig 1.

My laptop was then moved into that OU in Active Directory.  I restarted.
I am still unable to enable cache mode in Outlook 2010 (option is greyed out.)
If I run rsop on my local machine I show the settings in fig 2.  What is happening?

I am a novice in this area so any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,

If you have not tried please forcefully update the Group Policy from the server end.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

no change.  Also ran gpudate from the local machine.  Still seems to be picking up the default domain policy, which has cache mode disabled.

I did find a solution in the comment section at the below link.
Not sure why this has to be done, but I was able to enable cache mode after deleting the registry key.

Hi,

Even group policy does the same thing. what you have done is before applying GP from server forcefully changed in the client end.

Will it stick on a reboot? Will it stay in cache mode?
