Software Deployment Question

Anyone know the Java property to change to disable Exception Site List editing?

06/19/2014 14207 views
Like IE's "Trusted Sites", we have a Exception Site List for my company that I plan to deploy using group policy. Using Orca I can't find a property to disable editing the site list on the user end. Does anyone know? Maybe it's a registry that I need to add to my transform. Thanks :)

Setting the value of deployment.user.security.exception.sites property to a file for which users do not have write permission seems to be how it is done according to the documentation here

Probably the best place for this setting would be in a system level properties file, that way it is applied to all users, So to do this you need to create two files, firstly a

deployment.config file which should reside in the folder C:\windows\sun\java\deployment   

and contain the following lines


Then create  the second file named deployment.properties file also in  the folder C:\windows\sun\java\deployment

and add the following line to it


and make sure the permissions on the file C\:/WINDOWS/Sun/Java/Deployment/exception.sites is set to disallow user modification.

Incidentally, the deployment.config and deployment.properties are the files often used used in disabling automatic updates, so you might be using these already in your package, if so, you just need the line above adding to the deployment.properties file
