Local group policy accounts not populating
matt1234 posted a question in Configuration Manager 2012Hi, I recently have taken on the challenge of creating and deploying images within my company. Everything seems to be going ok, minus a couple GP objects not applying... Within my TS, I have it set to generate a local admin account with a generic PW to use in case I need to get into the machine. Once domain joined, and I log into my domain/admin account ok, and run a GP update. We have 3 local admin/service accounts that should be populating within the users/groups sections. However, they are not doing so. When I look at the event viewer logs under GP, there are no errors, warnings, etc.. Stating that everything is ok, finds objects, pulls objects down ok... Is there something else I can look at, or something I may have missed? I've attempting to search the net, but it mostly points to "how to" within a GPO template. I really need to get a lid on this one, any help/direction is greatly appreciated. Thank you ,
Computers stuck at "Applying group policy drive maps policy..."
shawn.pederson posted a question in Group PolicyWe have recently decommissioned .BAT log on scripts for the GPP drive mapping alternatives. We currently have the drives map on LDAP queries for their AD User object department names. 90% of the time the logons are quick. However, after a power outage we will receive a number of reports of stuck on "Welcome" screen. I have done a bit of digging and enabled verbose logging and GPP tracing. They are clearly getting stuck mapping the drives but I don't see any error:

Starting Excel 13 addin "Solver" via group policy
TheCDay posted a question in Group PolicyI am trying to force an addin to load on excel startup. The policy I am changing is "List of managed add-ins (Excel)" I am setting "value name" to be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\Library\SOLVER\SOLVER.XLAM" And the value to 1 I see that the correct registry value being changed, so I know that the policy is applying but solver does not activate on startup. Any help would be great! Thanks!
Need Advice on OS settings vs GPO's
pd1003 posted a question in How do I ?GPO.xls Hello, I wanted to see if anyone could help me out with a couple problems we’re facing with using SCCM to deploy out critical OS settings and Applications/Packages setting’s such as; setting our home-page correctly in Google Chrome and killing Welcome Screen, Turn off default browser prompt and deleting desktop icon just to name a few. The attached spreadsheet indicates all of our OS and Applications/Packages setting’s we’re currently having to do through GPO. As you well know, using GPO’s is probably not the best way to accomplish this. However, after SP1 was installed it broke Sys Prep and we have not been able to accomplish a lot of these simple tasks the normal way w/o using a GPO to fix it. If you have any suggestions, please I would welcome your knowledge.
Deploy Fonts to Windows 8 using group policy
adsl.jalawiah posted a question in Windows 8Hi All We have few new Windows 8 computers added to the network. They are missing some fonts which we use specifically for some forms and all. Our DC's are running Windows Server 2008 R2. Please can any of you guide me on how to deploy fonts to Windows 8 using GPO. Some queries i) Is it possible to deploy through Computer Configuration. (users logging in will not be having admin rights) ii) After all computers get the font, if in case i remove the GPO, will the font get removed? (I guess NO) Please also let me know how to disable simple file sharing wizard through GPO. Thanks & Waiting for your replies. AJ
