Managed Preference Profiles not applying to Network users?

Hello JAMF,

Testing out OS X Yosemite and wanted to set Safari Managed Preferences. It worked on 10.9.5 but not on 10.10.2 or 10.10.3.

Local admin accounts:
New windows open with: Homepage
New tabs open with: Homepage
Homepage: doman.edu

Network users:
New windows open with: Favorites
New tabs open with: Favorites
Homepage: domain.edu

In the managed profile I have:

com.apple.Safari NewWindowBehavior = 0
com.apple.Safari NewTabBehavior = 0

0 = show home page

Is this an issue with Yosemite?

Edit:

as an added bonus, this doesn't work in 10.10.3.

Disable Saved State:

Level at which to apply the preference. User-level-every-login

com.apple.loginwindow TALLogoutSavesState = 0

@Poseiden951 There are a few threads on this.

TL:DR User Level Managed Preferences don't work on Yoyo.

Sigh, that sucks. I'll just use default, I'll have to test it out tomorrow.

Set new Safari windows to open to homepage

defaults write com.apple.Safari NewWindowBehavior -int 0

Set new Safari tabs to open to homepage

defaults write com.apple.Safari NewTabBehavior -int 0

Borrowed from rtrouton, thanks rtrouton!

Disable the save window state at logout

/usr/bin/defaults write com.apple.loginwindow 'TALLogoutSavesState' -bool false
