I need your urgent help please ....

I want to apply the following scenario and to apply it in the windows 2000 server Active Directory group policy so it will be implemented in all the domain users .

The scenario :

In internet options > security tab > Trusted sites > sites > 

I want to add ( http://hqweb ) in the trusted site list . and this site should be done in the group policy so it will be applied to all the users .

I appreciate your help .

If you really want it to apply to all users, then either modify the domain policy or create a GPO at the domain level.

Follow this EE answer here as to how to apply this:

Basically to clarify you'll run the GPMC from a workstation that has the IE settings you want for the security zones and trusted site already added.  Then do what the original author is saying inside the Group Policy.

If you have questions, let me know.

You won't be able to make the changes in the GPMC from the server, as stated above.

These are the steps:

1.  download the group policy management console from MS and install it on your workstation http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0a6d4c24-8cbd-4b35-9272-dd3cbfc81887&DisplayLang=en
2.  installed the windows 2003 admin pack on your workstation http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=C16AE515-C8F4-47EF-A1E4-A8DCBACFF8E3&displaylang=en
3.  Set your IE settings and trusted sites to what you want everyone to have on your workstation's IE tools, options, security page.
4.  Open the GPMC from your workstation and create a new group policy object
5.  In the group policy modify the following setting >> User Configuration>Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance>security>security zones and ratings
6.  Choose to import the settings from your workstation
7.  Close and apply the GPO at the domain level

It will take about 15-20 minutes to replicate the information, at which time you can either reboot a client PC or do a gpupdate /force on it.


AGAIN, I WOULD STRONGLY suggest that you test this GPO first by creating a test OU and throwing a few test computers in it, and applying it at that OU level first to make sure the settings are what you want.
