Group Policy

Hi All,

I have created a GPO for proxy setting giving it the location to pull up a .PAC file as a proxy but it is not getting applied. I want it to be applied to a group of user which is already created and linked to another sub OU and different proxy is applied on that sub ou. I have created a new OU and linked that ou to the new GPO and edited the .PAC file location but it is not getting applied. When running the GPRESULT /R it is showing that the GPO is applied but when I am checking the proxy setting, it is not reflected there.

Please Suggest!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Had a similar issue recently - check permissions on the shared folder that contains the file? It needs to have Read permission for the security group that the client computer belongs to.

I have checked the permission. It has read permission.

I am attaching some of the images to make it more clear. Here PAC Proxy Test is my new OU which is linked with the new GPO proxy setting (Pac Proxy Test).

Sorry if this is really obvious but does your PAC Proxy Test OU contain user objects or computers?

Thank You for your response.
I don't want all my user to get this proxy setting , but only some who belongs to the group dedicated to this proxy setting.
I understand but did you setup the site hosting the PAC file correctly? Also what very of IE are your clients running
Techie solutionVMware SpecialistAuthor Commented:
Yes PAC file is correctly hosted. We are using IE v11 on our clients.
Is the synatax of your PAC file correct?
Techie solutionVMware SpecialistAuthor Commented:
I checked with the syntax of the .PAC file, it is correct.
Try to uncheck the "automatic detect settings..."
Techie solutionVMware SpecialistAuthor Commented:
I tried with that too. but when I do so my internet connection gets lost and still proxy setting is not reflected in the setting.
What OS are your clients?
Techie solutionVMware SpecialistAuthor Commented:
Mix environment 2003/2008/R2.
Let try a test..

Do you have a workstation running Windows 7 but is running IE 8 - 10? If so I want to see if it is able to process the PAC file
