Site to Zone Assignment List

Q: Site to Zone Assignment List

So, we're attempting to use the Site to Zone Assignment List, but are running into the following error when Group Policy is updated:

Windows failed to apply the Internet Explorer Zonemapping settings.

Here are the only patterns we're currently using within our S2Z list...


Does anyone know if any of these four patterns would be causing the issue?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I am trying to locate which gpo is controlling our site zone assignment list.  
My expected outcome for this task is to add a site to our trusted zones for IE 11 on Windows 7 Ent.  
I've checked rsop.msc and checked the same exact location that we have our Windows 10 gpo's, but it is not there.  I am not sure what is controlling the Windows 7 gpo for our trusted zones.
I've also did a search within the gpo's looking for Computer Configuration containing Internet Explorer Zonemapping.
Is there anything else that I can check to try and locate where this gpo is coming from?

 Hi experts,
    I have a following problem - I am using the Site to Zone Assignment List GPO to assign the local site to trusted sites in order to enable automatic logon. Now when I open the URL in IE11 it works just fine - when I click on Sign In on
the portal it reloads and the user is signed in. When I verify the zone via File -> Properties menu I see, that the site is assigned to the "Trusted Sites" zone. doing the same on the same computer with the same user on Microsoft Edge doesn't
work - it asks for credentials. Now:
 - What is the potential reason for this? I also configured the "Do not sync browser settings" GPO to Disabled and I see it is applied properly
 - Where can I verify in Edge which zone has been assigned to the particular URL (that's a must for troubleshooting this problem)
Thank you in advance for any hints

(NOTE:  Links open in a new tab.)
In the TechNet article
here I see reference to a schema v.2 for the EMIE tool. It will apparently spit out the xml using the new version 2 of the schema. But the download link only goes to downloads for Win7/8 (schema v.1), and I cannot find any reference to where I can obtain
the Windows 10 version.
For example,
this article specifically references a Windows 10 version, where
this one references Windows 7 and 8.  Finding the Windows 10 version has proven impossible so far.
We have several sites which need to be opened in IE instead of Edge, and using our old Enterprise Mode site list is not working on our Windows 10 clients.
Current site list example:
<rules version="4">
          <domain exclude="false">www.contoso.com</domain>

Reading about the
v.2 schema leads me to think that the output from the tool is incorrect.  The documentation suggests that the output for Windows 10 should be:

<site-list version="205">
  <site url="www.contoso.com">

Or am I missing something here?

Hi all, hopefully someone can help me out with a slight problem and I am posting the correct forum!

Ok we have Windows 7 laptops runing IE8, all controlled with Group Policy and a Site to Zone Assignment list to control IE traffic. We also use SharePoint, and all SharePoint entries are in the S2Z list as Intranet Sites (1) and we have external access from any outside connection to these sites, so you can log on to your home PC and access https://++++++++.++++++++++.org and then sign in with your AD credentials.

The issue is that any of our company Win7 laptops try to access this URL with IE8 while on an external network they get page cannot be displayed, and any other Browser or non work laptop it works OK. Seems obvious as the GP that was last applied to the laptop set this URL as 1 (intranet Site) and when trying to load off the LAN it is 3 (internet Site).

I have been advised that as the FQDN for the URL is being applied by GP, it should still pick this up when off line and recognize as a safe site and load ? is this true? Any help please?

A:Site to Zone

While I am not positive, I'm fairly sure you are correct.

GP is pushing the internal site name to the corporate win7 PCs and when these laptops are outside they probably need to manually add the site as it is supposed to be "from the outside"

You should be able to add the outside address to AD and it will propagate out the next time these machines connect.

Obviously test this on your laptop first.

A:Restricted Site Zone ???

Hi again, Joe!

Since no one else is running with this Q, I thought I'd put my two cents' worth in.

The Restricted Sites Zone in Outlook Express limits what ActiveX controls and scripting languages can do in an HTML-formatted message. This makes you safer, as it keeps the lid at least a little tighter on the danger you're exposed to from malicious email.

There is almost no reason for a legitimate message to come to you bearing ActiveX controls OR scripting that you can't live without. Most of those "extras" (from legit sources) would be designed to either track you opening the message, or serve you up more ads. You don't need either one.

I leave my option set to Restricted, and have never had a problem opening a message. In fact, I wish Outlook Express had a setting where I could limit things even more by preventing an HTML-formatted message from accessing the net, period.

We are using Group Policy to issue an XML file with a list of sites for IE 11 to load in Enterprise mode.  We added our payroll company site because they were not compatible with IE 11, now they are ONLY compatible with IE 11.  I removed their
URL from the XML list over a week ago, but all company computers are still loading it in Enterprise mode.  I can have everyone turn it off manually, but the problem is they use so many subdomains that everyone would have to do it numerous times.  Why
is that happening?  I need to force this site and its subdomains to NOT load in Enterprise Mode.  It seems that when the URL was removed from the XML list it no longer forced it, but it also did not remove that setting.

A:Removing a site from Enterprise Model XML list for IE 11 does not disable enterprise mode for that site

No event error doesn't indicate the policy is applied fine. If the new configuration didn't work, the most probably reason was the group policy was not applied.
You could rest your Internet Explorer 11 and then restart the compute to check the result.
If it still doesn't work, run "gpresult /h gpreport.html" command to saves the report in HTML format with the file name "gpreport.html" at C:\Windows\System32\ directory.
Open this file to check if this group policy was applied successfully.Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help, and unmark the answers if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

I am trying to add a new site to the restricted sites zone in Internet Explorer. (The site I want to add is an ad sender.) But Internet Explorer won?t let me add it. When I try to add it, I get the following message:

"The site you specified already exists in another zone. Please remove the site from that zone before adding it to the current zone."

Terrific. Internet Explorer gives no hint as to where the site might already exist.

Well, I?ve searched those locations that I?ve previously learned might have the site, but I can?t find it there. The locations I've checked include:

I am not sure if the version information on the download page is incorrect, or if the download page is serving an incorrect version of the utility.  I have no idea if the tool is really supposed to be on version 5.1 or not or if version 4.2 is the latest

I have a small question / issue when using Enterprise Mode.
We have enabled it using GPO by specifying both a site list and the Enable settings for manual override. This works fine but I don't know how to reset the manual override if somebody flicks the EM mode for a specific site.

I just want to tell IE to forget all manual overrides and apply the sitelist as delivered.
I tried to look in the registry, in the %AppData% fodler, even cleared the IE cache but IE still remembers the user overrides.
Any help will be really appreciated.
Thanks, Nic.

A:Enterprise Mode site list and manual override

Hi Nic,
As the official documents said, this registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode] ?Enable? = ?? | {URL:port} can also be used to collect manual overrides. By configuring the ?Enable? key with a
valid URL and port, Internet Explorer will initiate a simple POST to the supplied address whenever a user enables or disables Enterprise Mode. This effectively helps customers crowd-source lists of compatible Web apps from their own users, which may decrease
triage and testing costs.
Approximately 65 seconds after Internet Explorer 11 starts, it looks for a properly formatted site list. If a new site list is found, with a different version number than the active list, Internet Explorer 11 loads and uses the newer version.

This is designed by default, and we cannot reset the by preventing the changes.

We may try to logon script to re-deploy the original site list to reset the site list settings.

Have there been any changes to IE that allow us to force an Enterprise Mode site list update without having to actually launch IE, wait up to 65 second, and then close/relaunch IE? We're running IE11 with Enterprise Mode on our Citrix VDIs (Win10 1703),
and this one issue is a major concern. I know that I can launch IE in the background as part of a logon script to accomplish this, but that's detrimental to the logon performance, so I'd like to avoid going down that road.
At this point, I would even settle for an accurate list of all
files and registry keys used by IEEM (outside of the two standard keys enabling it with the site list path and the site list version). I've been trying to exclude folders and registry keys in Citrix Profile Manager, but have had no luck. The initial launch
of IE, which goes to our Citrix Web site, never starts up in Enterprise Mode. We have to wait and then close/relaunch.

We were using the Site List Manager for a few months and it was working OK.  Now that the admin workstation is Windows 10, we downloaded the new Windows 10 version, bulk added the sites from the xml file and then resaved the XML file.  
The new format does not work, even for Windows 10 systems.  We had to restore a backup copy of the old v1 XML file and use the old site list manager to keep the original XML formatting.
What do we have to change on the workstations to make the new xml format recognized and will it IE 11 on Windows 7 and 8.1 systems recognize this new format?

Has anyone worked out a parsing for the XML file to put it into a human-readable format so that it is clear which sites or pages are in Enterprise Mode, and which mode of emulation they are in?

I am testing a new Enterprise Mode configuration for a new Windows 10 v1607 configuration. I am familiar with using  Enterprise Mode in IE11 on Win8.1 and am now testing using it for the interaction to open specific sites in IE11 vs Edge on Win10. I
have the newest version of the Site list manager and am creating the v2 schema.
I am noticing that the site list only updates when IE11 is open, the documented process is "IE waits 65 seconds and then checks the local cache for a newer version of the file from the server." I notice that if I only open Edge and use Edge, the
site list doesn't update, it seem sto only update when IE11 is opened. This process works correctly, however what I am wondering about is the scenerio where our end users are only using Edge, and don't open IE11 very often or at all. Does this mean there site
list is never going to update?
We are trying to move people to use Edge, so as more people start using Edge more and IE11 less, want to understand if those people are giong to stop getting site list updates, so if we configure something to open in IE11, it won't actually work unless they
manually open IE11 to get trigger the site list update.

My question is where is the site list cached and is it per user or computer?

The reason I need to know is that we have a Citrix environment we are upgrading to IE11 and want to know if we cache the latest when creating the vdisk, will it be cached for all users or will they always download a new copy with all the bandwidth it will

We host out site list for enterprise mode (IE 11) on an HTTPS site. but i can't seem to figure out where the file gets cached on the workstations. basically when i am troubleshooting i want to be able to open the cached sitelist.xml and see the contents. 
Does anyone know where the locall cache for the sitelist.xml is stored on the client PC's? (windows 7).

I have a web application which is not Edge compatible & when launched in IE11 displays badly formatted and skewed text. I've found manually adding the site URL to Compatibility View Settings resolved the messy text issue and I know through use of
EMSL we can force sites to open in IE11 even when attempting to browse with Edge.
I need to have it set so that the site URL is automatically applied to all users in Compatibility View by default so that they don't have to manually add it themselves. My understanding is that Compatibility View is an emulation of legacy IE8 settings. I
know that the EMSL is recognising our site correctly because it forces opening in Edge - so we know its being picked up,  but I've tried setting the URL in an EMSL to IE7 & IE8 compatibility mode, but the text issue still persists.
Can someone please help with automatically applying Compatibility View for users for this site? Below is an example of what I've tried. The website is in the format "hostservername:portnumber"; I've tried just the host server name without the port
just in case and it makes no difference. Below is my .xml code for EMSL - I've tried both "IE8" & "IE8Enterprise" but it makes no difference:
<site-list version="1">

We have begun to pilot Windows 10 Enterprise in our environment.  As part of this, I've created copies of the GPOs that point IE11 to the Enterprise Mode Site List.  The new copies use a WMI filter so that it applies only to Windows 10 clients. 
Then, I created a schema v.2 version of our Enterprise Mode site list so that I could tell clients not only to run certain sites in IE8 Enterprise Mode, but to open them in IE11.
If I browse to the sites in Internet Explorer 11, Enterprise Mode works as expected; however, if I browse to the sites in Edge, it doesn't work.  Instead, I just get various compatibility problems from the page not rendering correctly, to getting a
"your browser is incompatible" message, to not having the plugins or ActiveX controls needed available.
I thought the whole idea of schema v.2 was to be able to have sites load in either Edge, IE11, or to run in Enterprise Mode with no preference?  How can I get sites to forcibly open in IE11 when needed?
By the way, I've already checked group policy results and verified my Windows 10 test client is picking up the new v.2 Enterprise Mode file and not the old v.1 one.

In testing Enterprise Mode using IE11 I've been able to do the following...

Create a sites.xml file using the Site List Manager tool and store it on a web site accessible by all clientsEnabled the "Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list" group policy option and entered the appropriate URL to access the sites.xml file.Verified that the client applied the policy and sites listed in the sites.xml file were using Enterprise ModeAlso verified that the client registry entry "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode" CurrentVersion value was set to 3.Opened the sites.xml file and removed an entry, incremented the <rules version="4"> and saved it.
Only 1 problem:  The client will not stop running the site I removed from the sites.xml file in Enterprise Mode.
I've waited forever and it will not pick up the new file and I did increment the version number in the xml file.

So I proceeded to delete all browser history but doing the following didn't get rid of the sites.xml file...
Browser History --> Delete --> (tick all the boxes) then Delete.  Restarted the browser after it was done.  This didn't help so I went to...
Browser History --> Settings --> View Files
Found that the sites.xml file was still in the INetCache  in the following path; C:\Users\jjasta\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache)
If I manually delete the sites.xml file from here the c... Read more

A:Enterprise Mode IE11 Site List Not Updating on Client...

Here is some information that should be helpful:
Approximately 65 seconds after Internet Explorer 11 starts, it compares your site list version to the stored version number. If your file has a higher number, the newer version is loaded. And please note: After this check, Internet Explorer 11
won?t look for an updated list again until you restart the browser.
To make sure your site list is up-to-date; wait 65 seconds after opening Internet Explorer and then check that the
CurrentVersion value in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\EnterpriseMode\ registry key matches the version number in your file.
If CurrentVersion is not set or is wrong, it means that the XML parsing failed. This can mean that the XML file isn?t there, that there are access problems, or that the XML file format is wrong. Don?t manually change the
CurrentVersion registry setting. You must make your changes to your site list and then update the list using the import function in the
Enterprise Mode Site List Manager tool.
