On an SBS 2011 domain, we need to add a website in the form of an IP address (http://1.2.3.4) to the intranet advanced page in IE.  

Is there a way to do that in group policy so we don't have to go to each machine?  If so, how? I've done very little with group policy.

How do you find the place to put in the settings in an existing group policy object? There's soooo many things in there : )

thanks!

And I don't want to overwrite other settings / website.  Just add this one to the list.

Hello,

Please do as the following steps:
1. Open GPMC in your Domain Controller. Create a GPO or use an existing GPO linked to the OU which contains all users.
2. Under User Configuration, expand Polices > Windows settings >Internet Explorer Maintenance >Security
3. Double click Security Zones and Content Ratings, then chose Import the current security zones and privacy settings.
4. Click Continue, then click Modify Settings.
5. In the Internet Properties windows chose Security tab, then click Local intranet, click Sites to add sites you want.

Note  that once you make this setting in GPO you will not be able to modify it on the clients machine directly. Once GP has control then that is the means to control this.

thanks guys!  Yo_bee - I realized that the hard way : )  made that change in GP and then noticed that it was the only entry.  I think someone had a couple things in their's

but would there have been an easy way to get everyone's entries of websites in their intranet to see if there was something special / be sure to include others that are there by default?   Or do you have to go to each machine.

You can write a script to collect everyone's reg setting for this setting then analyze it.

How many users are you talking about.
