Hi,

I have a 2003 AD and a 2008 server running Citrix. I have a .net application runing from IE8. The security settings for EI8 on the Citrix server does not allow the application to run from IE8.

Because the AD runs on 2003 it is not possible to set the settings on the AD GPO and I am not allowed to import security settings in Local computer Policy from 2003 AD either!

Instead of changing the settings for all users is there a way to change security settings for all users, so that the settings only takes effect on domain users accessing via Citrix (server 2008)?

Thanks!

Yoy can do it by GPO. You must install and run Remote administration tool on Windows 2008 server and here run snapin for Domain Group policy. Then you will be able to setup also values for Windows 7 and W2008 server. Then apply this policy only to Citrix servers.

Download the Administration Tools package from the Microsoft Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=137379).
Install this tool to Windows 7 workstation or Citrix server with Windows 2008 server. Then simply run Group policy Management
from this suite and create policy, find the value which do your job and assign it to the server only.

I think you are misunderstanding me? I need to do it on the windows 2008 server running Citrix - your work around does not fix my problem :O)

Yes. I offer to do it by GPO. But in Windows 2003 domain is no GP template for Windows 2008 server so you must use my suggestion to create it. Or you can do it by logon script. Then you simply:
IF %COMPUTERNAME% = "CItrix_Server" Then run_script
Or on every Citrix server is file c:\windows\system32\usrlogon.cmd and here you can add lines doing your job. This file is executed only on this server during logging of user.
