GPO not applying to IE 10 or 11

Posted on 2014-12-15
Last Modified: 2014-12-22
Running 2008 R2 DC, windows 7 PC's. I had to create a GPO that added a setting in IE.. Tools\internet options\security\ intranet\ sites\advanced and it adds a couple of FQDN's.. For the most part we run IE 9 and the GPO worked on all of those PC's however we have a few PC's with IE 10-11 installed and on those PC's the setting doesnt get applied. When I do a GPresult it shows the GPO was applied to the PC. Is there an something extra I need to do that Im unaware of to get the GPO to work on IE10=11

If you put the setting in the "IE maintenance" section then it won't apply to IE10+ and there is nothing that will make it apply. IEM has been deprecated. You can alternatively use the site to zone mapping settings under administrative templates.

Try adding the sites to the Site to Zone Assignment List policy found here:

User ConfigurationAdministrative TemplatesWindows ComponentsInternet ExplorerInternet Control PanelSecurity Page > enable the Site to Zone Assignment List > click on the Show button > add in your sites to this list with the Value column set to 1 (which assigns the site to the Intranet zone) > OK when done > run gpupdate /force > log off and log back on to test.

VB...That is exactly what I have done sorry I should have been more specific in my original post.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Can you see the setting when you run a RSOP query under an account which the GPO is configured to apply to?

Thanks for the suggestions.

sorry I should have split the points in the first place. You both had the same answer but VB gave the specifics on how to apply the GPO.
