  • Trusted site GPO make them un-editable

    Hello,

    We have a GPO that configure IE and among the settings we configure a list of trusted site.
    We discover that the GPO apply to windows XP and not to windows 7.
    I'm using windows 2008 R2 OS, and as I understand, the GPO did not apply to windows 7 computer because I don't have the path: User\policies\windows settings\internet explorer Maintenance (which is not present in 2008R2), so I'm configuring the Trusted site from this location: User\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows component\Internet Explorer\Internet control panel\Security page\Site to zone Assignment list

    when I configure this, it add the site i want to the trusted list but it make the list UN-editable, people cannot add more trusted site, the field is grayed.

    what else i need to configure in-order to make the trusted site editable after the GPO is applied?

    Thanks

    OK, I will ask it this way:

    How can I add the "Internet Explorer Maintenance (IEM)" to my Windows 7 GPMC?
    is there a way? I need to comfigure Trusted sites but Internet Explorer® Maintenance does not exist

      We use trusted sites in our org and it works fine for us.

      Windows 2003 Domain with Windows 7 clients.

      Open GPMC
      Click on User Configuration
      Then open Policies
      Then Windows Settings
      Then Internet Explorer Maintenance

                no one here ever noticed that the Internet Explorer Maintenance is no longer available when you install Adminpack on windows 7?

                  What adminpak are you talking about??

                  The only proper tools available for Windows 7 are the RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) tools.

                  Have you installed these and configure them through Programs and Features??

                    I've just double checked on a Windows 7 system connection to a Server 2008 R2 domain and i can still see the IEM configuration.

                    In my opinion there is something that your either don't have permission for or something that you have not done that is causing this issue.
