Windows 7 IE Proxy Problems - Windows 2000 Domain Funcional Level RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Guys,

     

    I'm having a problem with new Windows 7 Machines on a Windows 2000 based domain.

    The users can receive the Proxy GPO (Which have two configurations: Proxy and Default Home Page. The Home page is loaded without problems), but the proxy settings does no apply to these Windows 7 Machines.

    I know that some differences in the GPO structure exists, but there is a way to configure these Settings to Work with the Windows 7 Machines? If I install the ADMX files on all DCs, the users will be allowed to load all te configurations?


    Thank You

    please upgrade to AD DS 2008 / 2008 R2 as Windows 2000 is not yet supported. If you have no DCs running Windows 2000 then raise DFL and FFL.

    The users can receive the Proxy GPO (Which have two configurations: Proxy and Default Home Page. The Home page is loaded without problems), but the proxy settings does no apply to these Windows 7 Machines.

    Run rsop.msc to check appliance of the wanted group policy and run gpupdate /force on client computers. Possible that you have DNS resolution problems / AD replication problems.

    For group policy questions, ask them here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/threads
