I am trying the below to add a few sites to the local intranet of my IE browser in a GPO and apply it to an OU that contains a Windows 2012 RDS server.   After login as a user and run GPUpdate /force, I open up IE>internet options>local intranet>site>advanced, I do not see the sites I added in GPO.  If someone sees something missing, please advise.  Thanks...


Edit User Configuration/Polices/Windows settings/Internet Explorer Maintenance/Security
Double click Security Zones and Content Ratings
Chose Import the current security zones and privacy settings
Click Continue, then click Modify Settings.
In the Internet Properties windows chose Security tab, then click Local intranet, click Sites to add a few sites.

Better use : User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel -> Security Page

Enable the “Site to Zone Assignment List” and edit the list, see

Thanks.

Just tried User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel -> Security Page-> Enable the “Site to Zone Assignment List” and add the site.  

I still do not see the added link being shown in IE>internet options>local intranet>site>advanced from the RDS server's IE option.

Are you able to run a RSOP (rsop.msc) on the RDS system as the user that should get the GPO applied?
Or use GPMC to run a remote RSOP and verifiy the GPO and its settings get applied.

This is expected behavior.  If you want to apply user settings to a computer OU,  you need to enable group policy loopback processing.
