Windows Server 2008R2 and Windows 7/8 with IE10/11

Hi Guys,

Currently running GPO's to push out various IE settings including Proxy and Bypass entries however it's time for new desktops and with those comes IE10/11. We all know Microsoft changed it all so those GPO's no longer work.

Some have mentioned to install IE10/11 on the servers and the settings you require can be done via GPP however after the upgrade mine shows just IE 6,7 and 8, no 10 or 11.

Has anyone found a suitable fix for this which enables a GPO or GPP to set Proxy settings etc from Server 2008R2 ?

Cheers.

You need to download the ADMX templates for IE10 and 11 and use Group Policy Preferences. It will not install the templates to the central store when you just install IE on the server. The first link below is for IE10 ADMX templates. I don't think they have released the templates for IE11 yet, but you can find some more information about configuring these options for IE11 in link 2.

Hope this helps.

I actually tried this to no avail. They also state :

If you install Internet Explorer 10, the Administrative Template files (interes.admx and inetres.adml) will be installed automatically when you install IE10 on the server.

Did you copy the admx files to the central store from the original C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions?

Yep but it didn't help.  What i now intend on doing is grabbing the registry hives from a later machine and putting these in a GPP and pushing these out instead.
