The environment is Server 2008 STD domain, windows 7 PCs and a group policy to add several sites to the trusted sites tab section of IE 8! We have to use IE8 to access a US Govt wed site that only supports IE8.
There is a group policy applied to an OU and under Computer Config-Policies-Admin Templates- Windows Components/IE/IE Control Panel/Security page we have all of our sites listed. This policy does not show as applied in the gpresults report.
Down under User Config, there IS a policy applied and it is the one that is working. It shows under User Config-Policies-Windows Settings-IE Maintenance-Security/Security Zones and Content Ratings. THAT policy is not applying either.
Two policies, neither applying.
Now, of course, when I open RSAT on my Win 7 box, or my Win 8 box, I DO NOT see the IE Maintenance as it was deprecated.
When I log into the server and look in GP Mgt, I DO see the IE Maintenance option, but the settings are blank.
So, where are my PCs getting this setting if it's blank? The gpreport shows that the GP I am working with is the source GP, but the source GP is blank under those settings when I look from the server.
I am baffled as to how this GP is still getting pushed to the machines and I still need to push a list of trusted sites to my PCs and I'm pretty sure I'm going to do that with a Preferences policy.
Thoughts on this?
