I use the old trick of bogus settings for the proxy server in Group Policy. I have as an example: OU1-Internet Access OU2-No Access When I move anyone from the OU2 to OU1 to allow them access, the proxy address still remains in the settings. I can manually change it back, but cannot get it to do so automatically. Am I missing something, or is it just MS by design? thanks all...

    When you move a user and have undesired results, you can try the command line from WXP - "GPUPDATE /FORCE /BOOT" which will update both the computer and user policies and reboot the machine. To see the list of GPUPDATE switches - "GPUPDATE /?". Another thing to watch. You must wait until replication completes with the DCs. Just because you move a user/computer object on one Domain Controller, that doesn't mean the rest of them have the updates yet. That time interval for replication is configurable and/or may be forced.

    thanks for the replies.... A little more info: I have tried most of those methods, including GPU and forcing replication of the domain controllers (through AD Sites and Services). It is W2K3 servers with XP clients. I can see by checking other settings that the GP is actually being applied, but the one setting (use a proxy server) will not change without manually going to that machine and 'unchecking' the check box. thanks again to all.....
