Adding bulk sites to trusted zone RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello 

    I have to add around 150 sites as trusted zone, we are aware of the adding to “Site to the zone assignment list” in Administrative Templates and selecting option 2.

    is this the only option to add all those sites one by one or do we have any other options as well for bulk addition

    Regards

    Aamir

  • Hello Wendy,

    the scripts looks good, however i believe this is to add trusted site in bulk to individual pc, but what i am asking is how to add to all the computers in my environment. eg GPO forces for all the user/computer in environment from DC

    Thanks

    a possible method, would be to configure a single user/PC, then to use GPP Registry Wizard to collect/import from that user/PC into a GPP-GPO, you can then deploy that GPP-GPO as desired.

  • Hi Aamir,
    In this case, I would suggest you use script to help you finish the task. There is a script which may meet your request  in the following website, please take a look and have a try:

  • If you are famililar with powershell, you can use
    Set-GPPrefRegistryValue and Set-GPRegistryValue cmdlets to add them to
    an existing GPO (which of course can be created with New-GPO :-))
