Hi all,
I'm trying to set a GPO so that all computer in the domain have their IE's Local intranet locked to the Low setting. I can't seem to find the right setting to get them to switch from Medium-Low. Can anyone help?

Thanks.
Jon

You'll find it under "User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page", "Intranet Zone Template" (or similar, not using an English version. Set it to the Low.

I tried that but it doesnt change anything on the client side. I did a GPUpdate /force too. I was able to figure out how to lock it so the client cant change it, but I still cant set it as low.

From the server side, you can create a report in the GPMC to find out which policies are applying to the user(s) in question.
From the client side, you can run rsop.msc and/or (form a command line) "gpresult /v".

Yes, the policy is definitely hitting the client but I dont believe changing the template is the right setting to force it on the client.

Make sure that the GPO is linked to the correct OU, so it affects the user object when using 'User Configuration'.

How silly...the settings did apply!! It just doesnt change the slider bar! Here is the article I used: http://blog.rhysgoodwin.com/windows-admin/ie-gpo-zone-templates-and-the-open-file-security-warning/

oBdA gets the points for showing me to the right GPO. Thanks a lot.

Sorry, was away; I was just about to tell you that the policies won't be reflected in the slider bar (which doesn't check against the policies keys), but you'll see nearly (all) of the settings in rsop.msc under Security Page\Intranet Zone in rsop.msc. If that's the case, then everything went okay. The "templates" are just "shortcuts" that set a bunch of policies at once.
