Group policy Preference -> Internet Option setting not applying


  • Hi,

    I’m not very sure if any of you have encounter this strange issue when
    configuring GPP -> Internet option setting for window 7 IE9 or IE11.

    The following
    are spec of OS and IE version used in my environment.

    Window Server
    2012 R2 (IE 10)

    Window 7 (IE9
    and IE11)

    Recently I
    have deployed proxy setting via GPP as I do not have IEM under my GPMC console.
    Once the setting is been configured and deployed, I have notice that the GPO do
    not apply after the user login. The following scenarios is what we observed.

    1) User boot up the machine, Login and proxy setting will not applied
    1a) gpupdate /force -> Proxy Settings applied
    1b) setting will be removed after the GPO refreshed

    2) User boot up the machine, Login and proxy setting will not apply
    2a) User logoff and login proxy setting applied.
    2b) Setting will be removed after the GPO refreshed

    Kindy advise
    if there is any solution to ensure that the setting apply whenever the user
    login and stay intact even after the gpo refreshed by itself.

  • Hi,

    >>1a) gpupdate /force -> Proxy Settings applied
    >>1b) setting will be removed after the GPO refreshed

    Based on the description, we can run command gpresult/h report.html to collect group policy result reports to compare how the settings are being applied.

    Besides, have we installed the following hotfix on the computers with IE 9? If not, we can try to install the hotfix.

    Internet Explorer Group Policy Preferences do not apply to Internet Explorer 9 in a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain environment

  • Hi Frank,

    the GPresult show that the setting is already been applied to the machine.

    as for the hotfix, my environment is running on Window Server 2012 R2. so I believe the hotfix doesn't apply to me?
