Internet Explorer Maintenance in a GPO
Posted on 2009-05-13
Trying to decifer how this Internet Explorer Maintenance interacts with the Normal Administrative Template Settings. I currently use IEM to push a false proxy address to all my users to block web access. I have a reversing policy that a security group has access to and this is how we control internet access. That is all i have configured there. I use the administrative templates to lock down internet explorer including the ability to get into the connection and proxy information.
I read an article online that stated that the IEM will only apply it's settings if the setting
Admin Templates > System > Group Policy - IEM Policy processing is enabled.
is this true? I have it set to disabled and everything is working. The article kind of leaned towards the use of one or the other.
could someone elaborate more because i am not getting this. The reason for my post is that i have 1 user (who up until recently was working just fine) who's IE security tab is being locked down. None of the other users have this issue and this user has the same group memberships, same rights, same everything. I think it may have something to do with my setup.
