GPO DelegateSentItemsStyle

    Question

  • Hi there,

    I am trying to add a registry setting to the laptops in an OU but it won't work and I dont know why it is not working. Maybe U can help me out here.

    We have 80 laptops with Windows 7 and a domain controller on Wndows Server 2008 R2 Standard with SP1

    I created a GPO and under Computer Configuration I clicked on Preferences, Windows Settings and registry.

    Here I created an Regitry Item to this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKU\.DEFAULT)Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences

    I added DelegateSentItemsStyle with Dword value: 1

    When I run a gpupdate /force and then restart the laptop, the registrykey is not added to the registry on the Windows 7 laptop.

    Security filtering: Authenticated users

    What am I doing wrong???

  • Your registry key looks incorrect if you used HKU\.DEFAULT. It should be HKEY_CURRENT_USER:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences

    When using Computer configuration, HKEY_CURRENT_USER points to
    HKU\.Default, which in turn is an alias for HKU\S-1-5-18.

  • Also apply this GPP to your laptop users, not computers.

  • Also, your GPO must be a user policy.

  • Thanks for the replies guys but it still doesn't work. I must be doing something wrong.

    Hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key path Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences
    Value name DelegateSentItemsStyle
    Value type REG_DWORD
    Value data 0x1 (1)

    The Key is not added to the registry but when I run a GPresult /H I see that the GPO is under the APPLIED GPO's

    If you use HKEY_CURRENT_USER in Computer Configuration, it will end up
    in HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18...

  • Hey guys,

    I think this should be the right one....but is still doesn't work.

    Could it be having something to do with administrator privileges?

  • The GPO must be linked to the OU where the users reside.

    Hi Rolf,

    The GPO is linked to the right OU. I even added Domain Computers and Domain users to the Security filtering

    Friday, September 25, 2015 8:23 AM
  • Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Office isn't installed om de domain controller???

  • No, as I said, where the USERS reside:

  • Sorry, my bad but it still didn't work. It only works if I logon with an domain admin account.

    So thanks for the help Rolf! I appreciate it.

    Do you also know where i can set the permissions for domain users to add something to the registry when this gpo is applied??

  • Could be one or more of several things;

    • the user is not a member of any of the associated Security Filtering group(s) or
    • the user account is not in the linked container or
    • the default permissions on that registry branch is changed (I.E. SYSTEM is removed).

    If SYSTEM is removed you must change the GPP to: "Run in logged-on user's security context (user policy option) = Yes".

    * The user part of this GPO is disabled
    * The GPO link is disabled
    * The GPO has a WMI filter that evaluates to "false"
     
    "gpresult /h report.html & report.html" will tell you if your GPO is
    applied and it will tell you the reason if it is not.

  • When I start the laptop with my own account it works! #YEAH!

    But when I use a normal user account it does not.

    The options you gave do not seem to be the problem.

    Can i use elevation for this? If so, how do I do that?

    Then dig down to the differences between your account and this "normal"
    user account. Same OU in AD? Double check that.
     
    Group Memberships are probably not related because you have
    "Authenticated Users" there.

  • The difference is that I am a Domain Admin and the other user is not.

    How can I set this GPO to deploy as a domain admin? Is that possible?
