MultiPoint 2011: GPO for multiple home pages in IE8 not working correctly RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    The following issue is one that I initially posted in the Group Policy forum, but they told me to redirect it here...

    I have some Windows MultiPoint 2011 servers being used in a lab/classroom environment, and I am thankfully using GP to tweak quite a few settings.  One setting that the lab instructors have asked me to add involves setting multiple home page tabs in IE8.  I'm trying to do this via User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Disable changing secondary home page settings.

    I've added the two home pages I want users to be directed to upon launching IE8, and that part is working as both the tabs are showing up.  However, a third (and primary) tab that opens up is one that has set as its home page, which then redirects to  I have not set this as a home page in any of my GPO's settings, so does anyone know why and/or how it's getting applied?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
