At work we have a group policy which changes the registry for the user when they log on to set the web proxy. We are changing our proxy over to a new one, which no longer needs the proxy setting enabled.
Im trying to figure out how the setup actually works because it's not doing what Im expecting it to do
I went to our AD and made a new policy which updates the registry to disable the proxy, added it to a new OU and logged in with a user in that OU.
However the user still has the proxy enabled, and auto-detect selected.
Iv tried a few things, and somewhere along the way i managed to get it to change the hostname of the proxy to its IP (auto discover I assume) but I dont know what did it.
I went to change the user back to the old policy to try reset the proxy, but now its stuck on the changed address.
I can see the policy being applied on the user when I run a gpresult, but when I check the registry, it appears the changes from the policy are either not taking place, or are being changed somewhere else that I dont know about.
Im wanting to start again and try figure this out, but I have no idea where to go and how to achieve what I want.
anyone have any input that can help me?
Hope my rambling makes sense to someone.
