Hi Everyone,

I need to enable Javascript on one of our Terminal Servers running Windows 2003. How do I use group policy to populate enabling Javascript instead of manually?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon and thank you very much for your help in advance!

How about navigating to
user configuration, windows settings, internet explorer, security, security zones -> there you would check import current zone security settings. Go to security tab and set active scripting to enabled for internet zone.

Hi,

 I got this pop up screen (please see attached the image)  when I went to User configuration, Windows settings, Internet Explorer Maintenance, Security, Security zones and Content Raitings " and selected "Import the current secruity zone...." ( By the way, I didn't see this option under the User Configuration, Windows Components....) then I Enabled Active Script under IE8 Tools, Security, Internet option page.

I can load the page requring Javascript now since I have administrator's rights.  When I log in as regular user it still tells me that java script needs to be enabled.

Any idea?

Thanks a lot for answering my question promptly!

I guess you have other GPO assigned to non-admin users disabling the js ? Isn't it the default domain policy ? Enforce this one or move or create additional user for testing and place him in the other container.
Use only enforced new created policy on him and see if this helps.

I created  a new Organization Unit and a new group under it and add a user who has to be in Terminal server user and Remote Desktop users group. By the way, terminal users group is the one I created  for securing desktop and task bar when users connect to Terminal server and Remote desktop user group is built in in Windows 2003 server. I only have password policy which is default domain policy and one terminal user policy.

When I log in as this user and I got same error:" Javascript needs enabled". Every time I went back the group policy that message is popped up. It doesn't matter which user login to terminal server except administrators whom the javescript enable for them.

It is just that terminal server. It could be something to do with terminal server user policy I created. I will double check. Thanks a lot!
