    Making global IE setting changes via LANDesk as an alternative to GPO

    Rookie

      Has anyone made global IE setting changes via LANDesk? For example, Adding trusted sites and making security setting changes etc.? What's the general process?  Are there certain scripts involved?  Please advise.

          Microsoft's Technet pages will be your main help here.

           

          Depending on what you're after (in terms of changing), what you want may be in files or in the registry. Now as long as it's something as straight forward as that, you can script it into a package pretty easily, and then do it with LANDesk (either as a policy, a customer vulnerability, or just a vanilla distribution package if you want).

           

          So - "is it possible" in principle - yes, absolutely.

           

          Whether or not what YOU are after can be done in this manner, that depends entirely on what you're after. You need to find where the information you want to set is stored ... once you know that, then you'll be able to know whether or not it's something that you can automate with LDMS. IE is a bit of a strange creature, and not terribly much is as straight forward as one would necessarily like .
