I am running a Active Directory domain with several Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controllers. I am trying to configure the "Include local drectory path when uploading files to a server' for the 'Internet' Zone and set it to 'enabled'. Default is 'disabled'.
The setting can be found in IE under Tools --> 'Security' Tab --> Internet --> Custom level under the 'Micellaneous' settings.
So I created a GPO and configured the setting under User Configuration --> Policies --> Windows Settings --> Internet Explorer Maintenance --> Security --> Security Zones and Content Ratings. The I clicked on 'Modify Settings' in the 'Security Zones and Privay' settings. This is when IE opens and then the changes you do to your local installation in IE will be transfered into the GPO.
But for some reason it does not seem to work for the "Include local drectory path when uploading files to a server'. I configured the GPO as described and set the setting to 'enabled'. I linked the GPO it to a test OU, disabed inheritance for the OU and moved a test machine into this OU. I change the settings in IE manually, run a gpupdate /force and when I log back in then the setting is being changed again to 'disabled'.
To make a long story short. Is it possible that this setting simply cannot be set through a GPO? Because when I look into the GPO settings then the settings does not show up. See screenshot. If that is the case why is the setting then being overwritten when i run a gpupdate /force?
