Doug,

Where are you adding that, and how.

When you say the resultant, how do you actually type it into the setting, and 
again, where in GP are you putting in that drive letter?
Thanks

I have found that if you add the mapped drive letter to the trusted sites list, 
it prevents the security warning.  The resultant format of the entry is:
file://Server.FQDN (assuming you used a fully qualified DNS name when mapping 
the drive).  An IP address would appear if it were mapped via IP.

No more prompts.  These are stored in 
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet 
Settings\ZoneMap\Domains under the root domain name.  If an IP address were 
used, it is store under Ranges\Range#, instead of Domains

I am trying to setup a few sites and unc paths to be trusted by computers in my 
domain.

The frustration is, where I am making the changes, does not seem to have an 
effect.

I am trying to not have the dreaded Open File - Security warning pop up when my 
staff tries to install things from my remote NAS file server

What is wierd, is I use folder redirection which points to the same NAS, and 
when users run the same executables, the ydon't get the Open File warning.

But if they run that same eexcutable from a mapped drive to a different folder 
on the file server, the Open File Warning box pops up.

Another annoying things, is if i set the site to zone assignment GP settings, 
the users are unable to add sites because it is greyed out.  I try to disable 
or reverse the policy, and I am still unable ..

Very frustrating at this point.

I am thinking, I am in the wrong section of group Policy
