Group Policy for IE 9, 10, 11 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a mix of IE 9, 10, 11. When we deployed IE 10, 11 we updated ADM;s to coonfigure IE 10, 11 group policy.

    Now we have separate policies for IE 9, and IE10,11 as some settings change. However I have few questions:-

    1. If i want to change IE9 GPO settings, how can i do? As on all the machines when i open GPMC, it shows IE10, 11 settings and not IE maintenance thing.

    2. What is the significance of Require server verifications for all sites in this zone in the IE trusted sites? Also, it is checked by default and how can we change it using group policy?

    Please share your expert views on either or both questions. Appreciate any help!!

    IEM will no longer work on computers where Internet Explorer 10 or newer is installed, regardless of the Windows version it’s been installed on. You must update your settings using Group Policy Preferences, Administrative Templates (.admx), or the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK).

    2. What is the significance of Require server verifications for all sites in this zone in the IE trusted sites? Also, it is checked by default and how can we change it using group policy?

    Only sites with https:// prefix can be added to the Zone, it assures a secure connection

    This option is not avilable via GPP, but we can control it via registry, the related keys are stored under

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2

    or

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2

    you can find detailed information in the following link

    Then we can deploy the registry setting to all via GPO.
