Hi All,

I am intending to untick the 'Require Server Verification (https://) for all sites in this Zone' option in the security of Trusted Sites - having forced some trusted sites out as part of our default domain policy.

Having googled briefly i found a registry value under 'flags' for trusted sites (zone 2) and changed the value from 71 to 67 (47 to 43 hexidecimal). After this whenever i try GPUPDATE/FORCE in command prompt i get this error message:

Windows failed to apply the Internet Explorer Zonemapping settings, Internet Explorer Zonemapping setting might have its own log file. Please click on the "More information" link.
For more detailed information, review the event log or run GPRESULT /H GPReport.html from the command line to access information about Goroup Policy results.


(this error message has persisted since i removed the registry setting change from gorup policy)

Any Suggestions to untick this box as part of Group Policy (or registry setting i could apply via GPO) would be much appreciated!

To remove the error, have you tried setting the flag back and pushing out the group policy again ?

can you confirm on the client that the flag has been reverted or not

if it has not, are you able to manually set it ?

if you can, it might be simplest to remove the GPO setting and push out a registry update via a .reg file
