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!

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?

Hi

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.

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
