  • Maybe separate the homepage policy setting from the Default Domain Policy to a new GPO, then you will have more flexible control over it.

    Create new policy, link it to that OU and set homepage in the GPO.

  • The Local OU policy wins over Domain policy.

    Whichever OU you want a different homepage. Create a GPO - link it and change/edit the homepage. This will affect that OU.

    On one of the test machine under the required OU verify by gpupdate /force

  • I used this steps to set up the home page in GPO i hope this is correct

    • Create a new GPO or edit the existing one. (I'm assuming you know how to do this already. Let me know if you don't.)
    • In the Group Policy Management Editor, go to User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer.
    • Find the policy Disable changing home page settings.
    • Set it to Enabled, and specify the URL for your home page.
    • Once it applies, the option in IE will be greyed out on the client PC

    all users are using IE 10 or above while checking other settings i saw this the below ,cannot see ie 10 and above can this cause any issue.

  • Dear All,
     I found out the root cause the old home page which is applied on default domain policy is set as  enforced ,so even when i create the new home page policy for that one OU ,the default domain policy is overwriting it and the new one is not getting applied,even when i enforced the new policy still default domain policy is overwriting it.
     for testing i created a new OU and removed inheritance of default domain policy and just applied the new policy its working fine like a charm.

    the problem is the default domain policy has lots of other settings which users needs, so i cannot stop it ,what has to be done in this case?

  • Thanks everyone,

    i resolved it here is the solution.

    I stopped the inheritance of default policy to the OU where i needed the new homepage,

    then separated the old home page policy by removing it from default domain policy,as there were lot of other policy created in default domain policy.

    created a new home page policy applied it to the OU where i needed it new and also linked the default domain policy as there were lot of other policy which was required, since the old home page policy is separated form default domain policy i got all the policies except the homepage.

    Regards
