GPO fail to modify register

    Question

  • I applied a GPO via Group Policy Preferences to modify register. we run gpresult at client end, we found there is an error on my GPO settings: The following settings have applied to this object. Within this category, settings nearest the top of the report are the prevailing settings when resolving conflicts.

    how to fix it?

    thanks.

    So what is the error? If you configure the same registry value in
    multiple GPOs, last writer wins. That's what this message tells.

  • Hi Martin,

    thx for reply.

    per gpresult, i found the registry item is success, but when check the same from client end, I can't found the same key from client's registry.

    Registry item (Key path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\AutoDiscover, Value name: ExcludeScpLookup)
    The following settings have applied to this object. Within this category, settings nearest the top of the report are the prevailing settings when resolving conflicts.

    Did you use computer or user part of a GPO?
     
    > HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\AutoDiscover,
     
    You cannot write to HKCU in the computer part - there's no user
    available. This setting thus will end up in HKey_Users\.Default ;)

  • right, I apply this GPO to the OU which contain user account only.

    I have test just now, and found if I grant computer local admin right to user, this GPO will applied successfully.

    If not, it will persist same result.  @_@

    IMHO

    Group policy modelling is good idea, same is: gpresult /h.

    And, did you change default permissions for GPO?

    How exactly do you do that?

  • add user to local administrators group.

    Then on the common tab, uncheck "run in currently logged on user's
    security context" (or what it is labeled exactly :-))
