Greetings!

We have a Server 2008 R2 terminal server that I am trying to get group policy loop-back processing to successfully work.

I have created a GPO in the terminal server's OU (it is the only computer in the OU) and enabled loop-back processing in "replace" mode.

I have had success with some settings, such as start menu settings, but no luck with Internet Explorer security settings. I have sites listed in the site-to-zone assignment list and customized trusted site zone settings that do not apply.

There are no of hotfixes released for windows 7/2008 R2 & make sure all are applied. Also, windows 2008 R2 SP1 has almost 800 fixes. If you see below posted link, you will find no of GPO related hotfix has been released.

I presume, when GPO is set via windows 2008 R2, it is applied to 64 bit IE bit not on 32 bit IE.

Hello Awinish,

Both the DCs and the RDS server are Server 2008 R2 SP1 with all current updates installed.

The RDS server is in its own OU. The OU has inheritance blocked. There are two GPOs in this OU, one just for deployed printers, and one for user settings. The user settings GPO has loop-back processing enabled.

In the user settings GPO, the site to zone assignment list is enabled in the user configuration side of the GPO. When I log in as a user, nothing is displayed in the trusted sites list.

If i run RSOP.msc, I can see the Site to Zone Assignment List is how I set it, but it just dosent apply in Internet Options. rsop on RDS Server
