Access Denied Copying inetres.admx

    Question

  • Hi!

    We need to create internet explorer 11 polices in our Windows 2008 R2 DC but we are unable to copy inetres.admx to %systemroot%\policy definitions\ folder and getting access denied message even after taking ownership of "policy Definitions" folder.

    Any Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Please try to take ownership of the existing INETRES.ADMX file and also INETRES.ADML file instead, and then grant yourself permissions to those files under the Security tab of the Properties dialog, to be able to replace those files.
     
    By default, these files are installed by Windows Setup and the owner is setup to "Trusted Installer".
     
    (By the way, it is recommended to use Central Store as it will significantly reduce the amount of storage being used on your domain controllers.)
     
    Hope this helps.

    Use a Central Store.
