Since I love to get the most out of my work :)

Check out this very easy script I wrote a few years ago on the GPTalk list. 
(Please know that this has NOT been tested on Vista and will most likely not 
run at all on Vista)


of course this script relies on a login script actually running- which is a 
challenge in itself- but it may be worth a try as it leaves the zones open for 
user management.

There are a few things you can change in the script to change which zone the 
entries appear it and I bet if you look in the registry- after you manually add 
some entries- it will become quite evident.

That definitely helps Darren, thanks a lot!!!  I've been experiencing some of 
the issues in the lab.  Exactly like you stated below.

The 2 different areas don't necessarily play well together and also don't work 
the way you'd like. My experience is that that Admin Templates approach will 
completely override the IE Maintenance zones that you've added. Also, unlike IE 
maintenance, the Admin. Templates, once set, will not allow the user to add any 
additional site-to-zone assignments. So, depending upon your requirements, I 
would stick with one approach throughout.

Subject: [gptalk] Adding additional trusted sites

I'm going to try and test this scenario in my lab but wanted to check to see if 
anyone else has run into this.

In production we currently have a few trusted sites defined using:

 *   User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer 
Maintenance\Security\Security Zones and Content Ratings

I want to add a few additional trusted sites.  What I was thinking was to just 
add the new sites using

 *   User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows components\Internet 
Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page\Site to zone assignment list.

What I'm hoping is that the new trusted sites are added to the previously 
defined trusted sites.

What do you all think about that approach?  I was also thinking of importing 
again via IE maintenance but just adding the new sites using site to zone 
assignments seems easier.

We are not using GPPE yet.
