    DFS security issue

    I have recently set up a dfs share to handle a few things like appdata and some redirected folders.

    The issue is that when i put the DFS path into the policy the user constantly gets a security warning when they click on anything that is in that folder. For example "Security warning, Are you sure you want to open this file?".

    Has anybody else experienced this and maybe solved it?

    Cheers!

    You need to add your domain to the IE intranet zone.


    Comp conf; adm templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Pages . "Include all network paths (UNC)"
    and/or
    User conf; adm templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Pages "Include all network paths (UNC)"
    and/or
    User conf; adm templates/Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Pages "Site to Zone Assignment List" - file://domain.local/* Value=1
