Hi Rob,// Using the Administrative ToolsOpen GPO Managment from administrative tools > right click on your domain > Create a GPO in this domain, and link it here > Name the GPO IE-YourExtension so you know the purpose of the GPO > // Edit GPO to include new Home PageRight Click on your new GPO and choose Edit > Choose User Configuration > Windows settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URLs > Important URLs > Customize Home Page URL > Enter your new Home Page URL > Click OK > Click the X oin the Top Right of the Page and Close the Managment Editor// Modify the Scope of how where the GPO is appliedClick on Group Policy Objects > Click on your new GPO > Chose Scope Add > Enter the Group or Users that should have the GPO applied > Remove the Authenticated Users// QA the GPORight Click on GPO Modeling > GPO Modeling Wizard > Next > Choose your Domain, Next > Choose a User on whom the Scope has been applied, Click CheckBox to Skip to the final Page, Next > Next > Finish > Show All > Has the GPO been applied, if yes go to settings > Show All > you should see the Home Page URL...Repeat the above stpes for the other home page, then login as a test user and open IE to see the results...Note the above steps are complete when using Windows server 2008 R2 and may varey slightly if deployed on a different OS........Cheers,-IvanIvan Sanders My LinkedIn Profile, My Blog, @iasanders.
