Compatibility View Sites GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • We currently have a GPO deployed which has many websites listed under compatibility view sites.  In this GPO, we have "Include updated website lists from Microsoft:  Enabled", "Turn on Internet Explorer Standards Mode for local intranet:  Enabled", and "Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites:  Enabled" well as many sites listed under there.

    The issue is, when sites are added to the list, it takes the domain name of the site (ex:, the only way for this to apply in a GPO is to add "" to the list.  However, this in turn affects all sites that end in, where we have other sites like we do not want listed in compatibility view.

    Is there a way around this?  If I add, compatibility view doesn't recognize it unless is listed.

    The only way around this I can think of is to move the systems to a sub OU and not have that GPO apply to it.

    Our end clients are currently Windows 7 with IE9 (upgrading to IE11 shortly).
