The Solution worked for me:
After trying lots of KBs here and there I noticed, I am not configuring the URLs listing properly. I was giving the URLs name correctly but was not filling the sequence numbers for all the URLs I was entering. So the trick worked for me is, I just given the sequence numbers in Value filed of the Site to Zone Assignment List and that worked for me like a charm…

Below is the screenshot of correctly deploying the Site to Zone Assignment List URLs list. In my case, I have used *.thedomainname.com etc… you can use URLs like http://thedomainname.com as well…that’s your choice…























Cheers.. Please write me back if you have any query or feedback..

  1. This is incorrect. The numbers are for defining which security zone the value applies to. The numbers need to 1, 2, 3 or 4. It explains it right there in the window.

  2. Hello, Thanks for writing in... The solution posted above is based on real implementation and worked well in my case.

    Anyways, could you please let me know what you found there to be incorrect? and what you tested that did not worked as per scenario explained in this KB article.

    Thanks
