RDP Server Trusted sites

Posted on 2013-11-20

I have a server 2008 R2 enviormant for both my DC's and 5 RDP servers.

I need to add 2 sites to the trusted sites and am trying to do it threw group policy. I tried with IE9 which I couldn't get to work so I upgraded bot DC's and RDP servers to IE10. I have tried both user and computer side of group policy by administrative templates\windows componets\internet explorer\internet control panel\security page\ site to zone assignment list.

If I do not have the policy enabled on all the servers if I look at the trusted sites page in internet options the window will allow me to add my own sites and this is with being both a admin and a user. If I enable the policy on 3 of the 5 servers when I go into trusted sites everything is greyed out but I can see the list of the 2 sites I have added. On the other 2 servers when I go in as a user (not a admin) they are greyed out also but the window is blank and the sites don't appear to work correctly so I don't think they are being applied.

Im not dead set on doing it threw group policy but that was the only way I could find to make the other 3 servers work.

and ideas? I have a feeling that some settings from when I was testing with IE9 are still being applied but I don't see them if I do a RSOP or GPRESULT.

Another thing to add. We have 3 DC's. Both the primary and secondary are server 2008 r2 with IE10. . My other DC is Server 2008 (32bit) with IE8.

Hi,

Policy path of adding trusted Site is correct.
Just one of the configuration would be fine  - user or computer based on how you need
Computer conf - for all users
User conf - only for current user who will login

Now we need to ensure, if the the policy is getting applied on the computers
for that,

1) Check the OU of computers and ensure policy is linked / inherited in that OU
2) Check if computers are in that OU
3) Give enough time for replication
4) Use gpupdate /force to enforce Group policy
5) Check if any WMI filter is set

1)checked RSOP and all the policys set show up there.
2) Yes. I linked the GPO to both the OU with the users and the servers.
3) been overnight and I have restarted the servers
4) have tried that several time in testing while I change the policy and can see the changes take place after I do the update /force
5) I have no WMI filters anywhere in my domain.

Thank you for your suggestions.. .Keep them coming.
