Can't set users IE homepage

    Question

  • Hello,

    I can't set a users homepage in IE via a GPO anymore, Google is fine.

    If I use a gpresults on my PC it shows the old homepage under User > control panel settings > internet settings > internet 5 and 6 which we don't use.

    and the winning GPO is {F11A6AA7-CE51-466A-9105-2F3E74126E61},mydomain.local

    The wining gpo should be the Default Domain Policy.

    I can't find a GPO called {F11A6AA7-CE51-466A-9105-2F3E74126E61} as I guess it's lost it's friendly name.  If I go to the sysvol folder {F11A6AA7-CE51-466A-9105-2F3E74126E61}, is in there.

    What can I do?

  • Hi TB303,

    Thanks for your post.

    According to your description, it seems it still show the old GPO. In the GPresult, it only show GUID name, and you can't even find the GPO, it may be still the old GPO reference.

    You check the article about How To  Identify Group Policy Objects in the Active Directory and SYSVOL

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/216359

    If it is the old Group policy, could  your please try to delete all the old Group Policy registry keys using GPP?

    If after delete manually, it works, we suggest you use GPP to delete them. But after that the registry keys won't come back, in case of mistaking deleting, please backup before the operation.

    Besides, What's your IE now?

    If it's IE7 or IE 8, you may also refer to the following article.

  • Strange I ran:

    dsquery * -filter "(objectCategory=groupPolicyContainer)" -attr displayName objectGUID -limit 0

    and put into a text file and searched for the GUID and it does not show up?

    What next?

    I'm not sure how I locate in manually and use GPP, can yo be kind enough to explain?

    Thanks

    "Control Panel"??? I'm aware of the abandoned IEM, but not of this path...
