Intune – Chrome homepage remediation failed Error: 0x87d1fde8

Guide on how to install Google Chrome ADMX template and fix remediation error

Download chrome package: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/9102677?hl=en

Export zip folder and browse to admx folder and then open chrome.admx on notepad

Copy the contents from notepad and added into intune

URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/ConfigOperations/ADMXInstall/Chrome/Policy/ChromeAdmx

Deployed the ADMX templates to ‘All Users’ in Intune

To prove the ADMX files have ingested and applied to the Intune devices check the registry path on the devices for chrome entries

Tried setting up homepage using the settings provided by multiple forums and google support website

Name: Homepage
URI: ./User/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Chrome~Policy~googlechrome~Homepage/HomepageLocation
Opton: String

 
Name: HomepageIsNewTabPage
URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Chrome~Policy~googlechrome~Homepage/HomepageIsNewTabPage
Option: String

 
Name: RestoreOnStartupGroup
URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Chrome~Policy~googlechrome~RestoreOnStartupGroup/RestoreOnStartup
Option: String

 
Name: RestoreOnStartupGroup
URI: ./User/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Chrome~Policy~googlechrome~RestoreOnStartupGroup/RestoreOnStartupURLs
Option: String

Intune policy failed to deploy the homepage settings with the following error:

remediation failed Error: 0x87d1fde8

SOLUTION:

When checking the registry path on the devices they differ from the valves provided online possible due to newer version of ADMX and the info online, after changing the reg path URIs within Intune the policy works and homepage etc… Works as expected

Original:

Original:
Name: Homepage
URI: ./User/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Chrome~Policy~googlechrome~Homepage/HomepageLocation
 
UPDATED VALUE:
Name: Homepage
URI: ./User/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Chrome~Policy~googlechrome~Startup/HomepageLocation
 
(update all 4 records previously entered)

Chrome ADMX settings were in the above location, all Intune URIs need to point to the correct path deployed onto the devices

Once it had deployed and the homepage updated you can verify the policy in the user account
